Walking on the increase.
RTE did a short radio feature on how people are exercising in cheaper ways at present. They mentioned Cycling, Running and Walking and put in a sound bite from me (wearing a Walkers Association hat) about the increase in the number of people walking on challenge walks.
The feature was on Morning Ireland on 17th June
