A local authority in the east of England has launched a new scheme aimed at getting families active ahead of the London 2012 Olympics.
Cambridge City Council and the Cambridge Olympic Walks Committee have joined forces to create several new guided walks around the city in honour of the games, which get underway on July 27th and close on August 12th, Cambridge News reports.
This project – which includes six separate routes designed in the colours of the Olympic rings – has been set up with people of all ages in mind, as the walks vary in length from 1.2 miles to 11.7 miles.
Indeed, yesterday children from two local primary schools completed one of the walks yesterday (April 18th) and prior to their unveiling, mayor Ian Nimmo-Smith said the paths are a "marvellous way of keeping fit and healthy".
"They seem to be accessible to everyone, young and old," he added.
