Subway Helping Hearts – Family 5K Fun Run series for 2017!

Whether you choose to run, walk or even push the buggy around the course, we’d love for you to join us on one of the fun-packed events!

Not only is this a fun 5K run including the iconic ‘Field of Fresh!’ – a final 500m of GIANT INFLATABLES inspired by Subway®  ingredients – it’s also a great fitness challenge for all the family and a lot of fun too! You can see for yourself in the Video!

Best Foot Forward

A weekly programme of guided health walks in open spaces around Nottingham, funded by Nottingham City Council.  Best Foot Forward offers different types of walks, so that you can find a walk that is suitable for you. There are usually two walk leaders present, one leads from the front and the other follows at the back of the group. So, all walkers can find their own pace.
Best Foot Forward is accredited by Walking for Health. The walks offer the opportunity to improve your health, make new friends, have fun and get to know your local environment.

Anyone who feels it is for them. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. We do not allow dogs (except guide dogs) or smoking on any of our walks.
