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?
