Shape up this February whilst shopping at St. Marks

Getting fit on the go has never been easier for Lincoln shoppers thanks to St. Marks and the Mamas & Papas mile.

Walking the length of the shopping scheme 10 times would equate to 1 mile, almost the same as walking from Lincoln Castle to St. Marks.

Walking the distance whilst pushing a push chair would mean an average person could burn up to 200 calories or, a 35g chocolate bar.

For those looking for a shorter distance, walking from Mamas and Papas to Homebase and back 10 times could burn a potential of 100 calories or 5 toffees.

Linda Allwood, Store Manager at Mamas & Papas commented:

Walking the length of St. Marks whilst pushing a pram is such an effortless and easy way for new parents to keep active and stay fit. It is a great, safe environment to get back into exercise, especially during the winter. The outdoor walkways are also covered, so you’re protected from the elements.

Valerie Johnson, Centre Manager at St. Marks said:

St. Marks is a great environment for Mums, Dads and Grandparents to come and exercise with the little ones. Once they’ve finished, they can spend time enjoying a coffee or bite to eat and of course, shop! We’d love to see more parents and carers down here excercising!

Let St. Marks know if you’ve tried the walk by using the #Mamasandpapasmile during February.
