Simply walk

...your way to a healthier you

Volunteer led walks run all year, with over 700 walkers who join us every week. There are more than 80 walks across the county. Volunteer leaders are there to help you walk at your own pace. Don't worry about being left behind, lost or feeling left out.

Walking is a great way to get out and about and meet new people while improving your health and wellbeing. Simply Walkers are out in all weathers, smiling, talking and enjoying each others company.

Most walks are weekly but we also offer additional fortnightly and monthly walks at some locations.

 

  • Visit our calendar for full details, dates and times of walks.

All new walkers are welcome whether you are

  • fit and active
  • haven't exercised in a long time
  • recovering from operations
  • have been advised to join by a doctor.

No need to book, just choose your walk and arrive 15 minutes before the start time, to register with the walk leader.

All our walks are graded:

Level 1  -  Get started with walks over flat ground and no stiles. Up to 45 minutes
Level 2  -  Occasional stile and gradient. Up to 60 minutes
Level 3  -  Occasional stile and gradient. Vary between 60-90 minutes
Level 4  -  *Occasional stile and gradient. 90 minutes plus

*Please note the level 4 walks are "Progression Walks" and not part of the national Walking for Health Scheme.
