Lace up your walking boots and get your backpack ready because it’s nearly time for a very special weekend of adventure. And the best part? It’s all for a good cause.
We’ve teamed up with The Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity and Salford Red Devils to organise Greater Manchester’s biggest ever sponsored walk, Circle Home.

Taking place on the GM Ringway this 8-11 September, the money raised will help support people experiencing homelessness in Greater Manchester and tackle homelessness head-on.

You can either join one of our five free guided walks, or walk one or more of the GM Ringway’s 20 stages independently using the Go Jauntly walking app. All we ask is that you try to pledge raising a minimum £1 per mile.

Guided Walks

Our guided walks will be suitable for all ages and fitness levels, providing a fantastic opportunity for you to come together with your friends, family, or colleagues in support of this important cause, while enjoying the nature and heritage on your doorstep.
There’s limited availability so book your place soon.

Easy Access

Designed around existing footpaths, parks and open-access land, the GM Ringway is easily accessible by public transport. The full route explores all 10 boroughs of Greater Manchester and is 186 miles (300km) long, giving you the chance to explore stunning landscapes, heritage attractions, and maybe even discover a new favourite cafe or pub!

If you’re looking for step-free routes, then take a look at the Hollingworth Lake and Sale Water Park circulars.
