About health walks
Walking is a great way for people of all ages and abilities to be active and improve their health.
Our friendly walk leaders run 20 different walks across the city every week. They vary from under 1 mile on the flat, to more challenging walks of up to 5 miles in local parks and green spaces.
Find out which walk would suit you, including if the route is suitable for a wheelchair or buggy in the Active for Life Programme.
Dogs are welcome, except on the cemetery walks. They must be well behaved and on a lead.
How to join a health walk
For detailed information about upcoming health walks check the activity finder.
There’s no need to book, you can just turn up and introduce yourself to the walk leader.
Please bring a completed registration form with you, or arrive 10 minutes early, and the walk leader will give you a form to fill in.
Walks do not run on public holidays and bank holidays, and we may cancel them in severe weather.
If you have any questions, or you’d like us to add you to our mailing list, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01273 294 589.
