Walking, Jogging and Cycling

Do you want to give walking, jogging or biking a go?  Sport Tasman in partnership with Get Moving have developed the Get Moving Ambassador programme ,a social activity programme designed to get people who have little or no experience at all with physical activity, started!  The focus of our Get Moving Ambassador programme is on the fun and social aspects of group activity.

Councils in our region have also been working hard over the last few years to provide a healthier and more environmentally friendly way of getting from A to B.  Considerable investment has gone into a network of paths to provide you with another opportunity to get more active, more often.
