Get Telford Walking 2022

Join us for Telford's biggest walking event as we explore the borough while getting some fresh air.
People out walking and enjoying themselves

Get Telford Walking is back with a special week-long event suitable for anybody looking to socialise and exercise on long or short walks.

This year’s event will take place between 16 and 22 May, with several strolls starting and finishing in many places throughout Telford and Wrekin.

Between 16 and 20 May, people are encouraged to attend some of the walks that take place every week in Telford and Wrekin.

The Saturday 21 May will have several short circular walks at community centres across the borough.

On Sunday 22 May, the week will culminate with a group of walks exploring parts of the ‘Telford T50’ 50 mile trail and ending in Telford Town Park.

You can just turn up to join in any of the walks, but if you view Telford T50 Events you can book your walk to receive more details as well as finding more information about the Telford T50 50 mile trail.

If any of these walks sound like something up your alley, then be sure to join our Get Telford Walking Facebook event to let us know that you are coming.

If you have any questions, or want to speak to someone about the event, you can email

Walk to school week

Schools across Telford will be participating in walk to school week from May 16th – 20th, including activities such as park & strides, walking buses and activities in the classroom. To find out more, ask your child’s school how they will be taking part or visit Walk to School Week | Living Streets

Be prepared

  • Walkers are advised to wear trainers/sensible shoes/walking boots and appropriate clothing for the weather conditions.
  • Vulnerable adults and children under 18 years old should be accompanied by a responsible adult.
  • All walkers attend at their own risk.



  1. It would be really useful to have these as route maps so that those of us that cannot make the walks, due to having to work, could do them at a time of our choosing. They may be available but I could not find any link.
