Walking and Running

Whether you prefer a lone weekend ramble in the wilds of the South Pennines, a brisk lunchtime city walk, an off road training run or a Sunday afternoon stroll with the family to spot the colourful boats and wildlife, the Rochdale Canal has something to offer everyone.

Look out for the various upcoming guided walks, village and town trails or health walks in the Calendar of events. If you want to explore the area under your own stream, take a look at the local guides in Your Stories for ideas on tried and tested walks or runs on your stretch of the canal.
