Get up and go

1 June 2010

Sport, Exercise and Health is launching a new weekly initiative, starting on Wednesday 2 June, to encourage staff to take a revitalising, invigorating walk during their lunch break.

From Wednesday 2 June (and every Wednesday thereafter) a lunchtime walk will leave from just outside the Indoor Sports Centre on Tyndall Avenue at 12.15 pm. A trained walk leader will take the group on a brisk 30-minute walk around the local area. The ‘Get up and go’ initiative is primarily aimed at University of Bristol employees, but anyone is welcome to join in.

No specialist equipment is necessary; just dress appropriately for the weather, wear comfortable sensible outdoor shoes or trainers, and bring a drink.

No booking is required, and the first 10 walkers to arrive on 2 June will receive a free pedometer.

If you would like to know more about these sessions, please contact Kate Buchan, Healthy Lifestyle Officer on 0117 331 1166 or email
