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

GM Ringway: Stage 1 (Manchester to Sale Water Park)

Albert Square – Castlefield – Bridgewater Canal – Chorlton Brook – Sale Water Park

This walk is the start of a brand new collaboration with GM Ringway, the long distance walking route for Greater Manchester which we are proud to support. Stage 1 takes advantage of historic canals, pedestrian pathways and an urban park to trace an ingenious and almost completely traffic-free route from the heart of the city to the green belt of the Mersey Valley.

Glossop Sunset Picnic

Glossop – Lightside – Dog Rock – Higher Shelf Stones – James’s Thorn – Old Glossop 

We are taking an early evening route which is a shorter twist on an old favourite. The plan is to head up Lightside towards the brooding plateau of Bleaklow. We’ll then head south towards Higher Shelf Stones for an evening picnic before descending back into Old Glossop via James’ Thorn just ahead of sunset.

Hathersage Lido & Stanage Edge

Hathersage – Stanage Edge – Hathersage Lido

For a summer special, we are taking on a classic circular route, starting the day down in Hathersage, hiking up to Stanage Edge before returning to a privately booked, heated outdoor pool at Hathersage Lido. Stanage Edge is one of the most popular outdoor locations in England, especially with rock climbers. On a clear day, some of the views from the edge are amongst the best in the Peak District.
