Petition: Include running in the active travel strategy

Emerging out of the #RunSome campaign is a new petition aimed at getting running included within the £2bn active travel plan in the England. This recently announced strategy – Gear Change – aims to boost active travel, particularly as the country emerges from the pandemic.

Running is not included in this strategy, with active travel equating ‘walking & cycling’ (as it so often does). This petition ask for running’s inclusion in the strategy, recognising both its value as an active travel mode and the mental and physical health benefits it has more widely for individuals and public health.
