Stockport Has All The Right Moves

Head to Stockport this summer for a family-friendly celebration of health and wellbeing...

Celebrate the joy of moving at Stockport Moves, a family friendly celebration of movement being held in an around the town centre on 2 July.

The day will feature the Stockport Mile event as well as an interactive event village in St Peter’s Square, offering a wide range of fun activities for all ages and abilities - and what’s more, it’s all completely free! So if you’re looking for something to occupy the kids for a while and burn off some of their energy, Stockport Moves in the perfect place.

The Stockport Mile is the flagship event of the day. It’s a free to enter mile run around the town centre that is mostly flat and is fully accessible to wheelchairs, adapted trikes and buggies – and everyone gets a medal at the end, even the babies in the buggy!

Councillor Frankie Singleton said: “This event is about the people of Stockport, all ages and abilities coming together as a community and feeling part of something special and joyful. Moving has so many benefits, it’s incredibly social and helps keep us happy and healthy. We want as many people as possible to join in the free race and fun on the day.”

On the day you can check out the stalls in the Event Village and watch the nail-biting stunts performed by the Extreme Mountain Bike Show. It’s well worth hanging around after you’ve collected your medal too so you can watch the best of Greater Manchester's club runners compete on the same course in the inaugural Men’s and Women’s ‘Race the Town’ events.

The event village is bigger and better than ever, with a variety of stalls from local organisations and free activities such as face painting, blood pressure testing from Stockport Council’s Public Health team, the fastest goal challenge with Stockport County Community Trust and their speed cage.
