Whether it’s the school holidays, or a much needed holiday from work, Kent has a host of places where you can keep active and make memories visiting over this period. Summer time is the perfect opportunity for friends and families to get together and enjoy some timeless moments in the sunshine.
Kent has something for everyone this summer with a whole host of activities, events and landmarks waiting to be explored. If you’re looking for a challenging walk, trying the White Cliffs festival could be your best bet. However if this seems like too much, we have a range of smaller route activities fit for the runners, bikers and walkers of Kent.
Trying something new, getting into the fitness spirit or applying your mind to a challenge might not always be easy, but this summer there is plenty of options to go about changing this. For people looking to get involved with social fitness groups this month, for example the Parkrun or HSBC Breeze campaigns, they offer free group sessions where you can meet people who have a range of abilities compared to one another. If you are looking to take an individual approach, the Kent Connected App is a great way to record your progress over a period of time and help you achieve your goals. For more information on this, and why cycling in Kent is a great step for a better and healthier life, take a look at our Summer of Cycling page.
