About the event

2019 will see the first Derby Walking Festival, a celebration of walking and walks throughout the city.

There will be a fascinating heritage, suburban and urban strolls, as well as out on the borders we share with our neighbours. 

Whether you like the historical walks, nature walks, walking sports, or you just want to get fit, enjoy some fresh air and meet new people, there is something for everyone. 

Most events are free, and all ages and levels of fitness are welcome.
