Buggy Movers helps parents and their toddlers get active outdoors
Buggy Movers is a free and friendly walking, jogging, running group for parents and carers to get involved with along with their little ones in buggies! We are currently running the scheme at 3 locations across Salford:
St Philips Chapel Street, 9.15am Monday mornings
Energise Centre, Broughton, 9.15am on Wednesday mornings
Langworthy Cornerstone, 11am Wednesdays
Children must be older than 6 months old, and we provide the buggies. There is no expectation that you’ll be running fast with your buggy, we follow a gentle programme to help parents and carers enjoy time outside with their child and with others. We can work alongside you to help you improve your fitness gently and get outdoors with your little one. Exercise outdoors has also been shown to have a very positive effect on mental health, helping us all cope better with the stresses and anxieties of everyday life. We know having little ones can sometimes add to that stress and we all find it hard to cope with children at different times in our lives. This is a friendly and free group aimed at local parents and carers. Complete a programme with us, and receive your certificate and free gift to keep you moving outdoors. Karen and Rachel started a small local women’s running club nearly 4 years ago, We Run Salford, and are both trained Leaders in Running Fitness. Do you want to train as well? Get involved! We’d love to see others equipped to run similar projects, and finding something good and useful in running with others.
