The region’s biggest and best running event is once again partnering with Tameside’s leading leisure facility and community services provider. Active Tameside and the Tour of Tameside are delighted to be working together again for this June’s event and the partnership will include a number of base level engagement opportunities via the ‘Walking Tour of Tameside’ campaign.

The ever popular community focussed event will be encouraging its participants to train in one of the many Active Tameside sites across the borough, utilising their fantastic equipment and expertly qualified staff.

UK Events Manager for Sports Tours International, Kevin Harmer said, “For the past three years Active Tameside has been a key partner of the Tour and we are over the moon to be working with them again in 2018. Their knowledge and enthusiasm is second to none and participants of all ability levels will benefit from their involvement”.

Lee Wood, Head of Commercial for Active Tameside said; “Active Tameside is really excited to be working with the regions biggest event and we firmly believe we can help all who take part to reach their goals. A number of Active Tameside staff will be participating in the event themselves and will act as Centre Champions to engage with our members and hopefully build teams of participants”.

A number of special promotions will be made available from Active Tameside including a free 7 day pass to all who register for any of the four days of running, training hints and tips and free to attend Tour of Tameside training sessions.

Active Tameside are adding further to this year’s event with the Walking Tour of Tameside. This free to attend event focusses upon participation for those who do not wish to run, but still wish to be a part of the event.
