The launch of new walking and running routes in Nottingham, will help residents get active and explore the city.

Launched on Friday 5th May, Nottingham’s 3, 2, 1 Routes will help guide residents along routes in Clifton, Bulwell and Southglade and help them keep track of how far they’ve travelled.

The running routes have been created by Beat the Street, Active Nottingham and Sport Nottinghamshire to help improve the health of the city. Beat the Street is an innovative walking and cycling initiative that gets thousands of people moving by turning a community into a giant game. Last year, more than 19,000 people in Nottingham walked, ran and cycled 63,000 miles in seven weeks. The game will be returning from 7 June to transform Nottingham again!

Jennifer Hanby, Engagement Manager for Beat the Street Nottingham, said: “Beat the Street saw thousands of local residents get moving last year so it is amazing to be able to launch these permanent walking and running routes which will keep people active in the years to come. Beat the Street is set to return to Nottingham this summer so it’s a great excuse to try out these routes and also get involved in the competition too.”

Beat the Street Nottingham is being funded by the National Charity Partnership – a partnership between Diabetes UK, the British Heart Foundation  and Tesco. The popular walking and cycling game is set to return for seven weeks from 7th June 2017.
