A voluntary group of ramblers are encouraging people to get outdoors this summer and enjoy the North Wales landscape as part of an annual walking event.

The 2024 Wrexham Walking Festival, which takes place from Saturday 1 June through to Sunday 9 June, gives people of all ages and abilities the chance to enjoy a series of free walks exploring the splendour and history of North East Wales.

Wrexham’s Member of the Senedd, Lesley Griffiths, who is a long-time supporter of the festival, has teamed up once again with organisers Walkabout Wrexham & District and will be taking part in this year’s event.

“From Coedpoeth to Corwen, the Wrexham Walking Festival not only promotes our region’s picturesque surroundings, it also encourages people to live healthier lifestyles,” said Ms Griffiths.

“Walking is a simple, stress-free workout and everyone is welcome to take part in this year’s event, which in the past has attracted walkers from across the UK to visit North East Wales.”

During the festival, walks take place daily and are graded depending on difficulty.

Harder walks are at least 6 miles in length and will cross rough ground so walkers require a good level of fitness.

There are also shorter, less strenuous walks so there is something to suit everyone.

All walks are free of charge and are led by trained leaders.

Participants are reminded to wear suitable clothing and boots. There is no need to book or reserve a place – just turn up on the day at the appropriate meeting place.
