Getting Active in the Community
parkruns are free, weekly timed 5km runs which can be walked or jogged. Visit www.parkrun.org.uk to find your nearest parkrun. If you have children, join them on a junior parkrun which is only 2km. (Note: only children are counted as participants but you can join them as they run round).

You are only a few clicks away from masses of information about walks, country parks, rides and nature reserves; all over this varied and beautiful county.
Walk 4 Health is England's largest network of walking health schemes. Programmes run throughout Bedfordshire. Health walks are regular, led, walks which are free and open to all – although aimed particularly at people who are presently doing little or no exercise. Many of the walks end at cafés where people can have a coffee and a chat before they leave.
#HealthyLuton is a campaign designed by Luton Borough Council, Team Beds & Luton and Active Luton, bringing together all the free, low cost and subsidised opportunities there are to lead a healthy lifestyle in Luton.
#ActiveBedfordshire is all about promoting healthy movement. Meet our ambassadors within the county to see how they enjoy getting active.
