Freshwalks. The classic experience.

Our Classic walks are the original Freshwalks experience; in the countryside, on the coast, in the mountains and on the moorlands. From easy half-day 8km rambles to epic full-day 30km treks, these walks offer the perfect blend of networking and exercise all year round. No matter the weather.

Allow yourself or your team a day out of the office to boost physical fitness, improve mental wellbeing and bond with other like-minded business professionals over a shared sense of achievement.

The rush of adrenaline and release of endorphins will almost certainly tinge you with that legendary Freshwalks feeling. It’s positively contagious. And if not, the home-cooked pub food and locally brewed ales will surely do the trick for you.

  • Exercise to improve physical fitness
  • Improve mental performance
  • Connect and collaborate with like minded professionals
  • Reduce stress, increase creativity
  • Push your comfort zone, shared sense of achievement
  • Pub food and drinks to celebrate

Marple and Peak Forest Canal

Marple – Peak Forest Canal – Roman Lakes – Marple

This walk is a perfect entry-level walk for Freshwalkers of all abilities and especially those with limited time to join us. Our route sees us heading south out of Marple along the Peak Forest Canal where we’ll enjoy the increasingly semi-rural waterside surroundings at a very gentle pace before crossing the River Goyt to head back along the river via the Roman Lakes into Marple Bridge.

The plan is to leave one of our favourite villages, Chinley and climb up towards Cracken Edge before heading past Chinley Churn. We’ll then drop down underneath the shadow of Mount Famine before returning to the tiny village of Whitehough for a late lunch. And remember, nanna and grandad are welcome too. Like the kids, they go free*!
