Schools in Pembrokeshire still have time to sign up to the UK’s largest walking, wheeling, scooting, and cycling to school challenge.

Taking place from March 11 to 22, Sustrans’ Big Walk and Wheel inspires pupils to make active journeys to school, improving air quality in their neighbourhood and discovering how these changes benefit the world around them.

The event sees schools compete each day to make the most journeys by travelling actively to school and is seeing its 15th anniversary by celebrating the success enjoyed across the years for pupils, parents, and schools.

The challenge is delivered by Sustrans, the charity that aims to make walking, wheeling, and cycling easier, in partnership with headline sponsors Schwalbe Tyres UK and Pembrokeshire County Council.

Sustrans’ Big Walk and Wheel is open to all UK primary and secondary schools, including ALN schools and PRUs, with prizes to be won every day.

Free resources are available to encourage pupils to help reduce air pollution and learn about the benefits of active travel for themselves, their schools, their neighbourhoods, and the planet.

Nearly 2.7 million active journeys took place during last year’s challenge, potentially saving 1,890 tonnes of CO2.
