Only a third of adults in the UK are active enough, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Walking for Health is England’s largest network of health walk schemes, helping all kinds of people to lead a more active lifestyle. We’ve done this with great success for over 12 years now, improving thousands of lives.
Our walks are led by friendly, knowledgeable people, specially trained for the job. Along with fellow walkers, our walk leaders provide all the advice and encouragement a new walker needs to build fitness at a pace that’s right for them. In just a short time, a small amount of regular exercise can significantly improve a person’s health, well-being and confidence. And from what our walkers tell us, there’s plenty of laughter to be heard on our walks, along with the sounds of footsteps and local wildlife.
Walking for Health is run by the Ramblers and Macmillan Cancer Support. By sharing their walking and health expertise they enable our 600 schemes to offer short, free, local health walks in communities across England. The partnership demonstrates both organisations ambition to help more people, including those affected by cancer, discover the joys and health benefits of walking.
