What is a health walk?
A health walk is a free and local short walk helping you get active and stay active at a pace that is right for you. It is a great way to start physical activity and explore your local area whilst meeting like minded people. All health walks are led by qualified volunteer walk leaders who will make you feel welcome regardless of your walking ability.

Why join a health walk?
Sometimes a walk alone in the fresh air is just what we need. But if you're just getting started and you're not sure that you want to do all your walking alone, or if you like the idea of having people around to help you stay motivated, then come along and join in.

What do I need?
Nothing! Just a pair of suitable, comfortable shoes. Sensible clothing appropriate for the weather. All walks are free of charge. Please arrive 10 minutes before the start time.

All walkers will be required to complete an Outdoor Health Questionnaire. All details are subject to change and can be dependent on weather conditions, to confirm please contact the Sport and Physical Activity Team on 01429 284047.

The walk on 13th September will be Intermediate Walk: 90 minutes/steady to moderate pace. Distance 3miles+
