Fitsteps offers a choice of walks, three times a week across the Maldon District and the South Chelmsford locality. The healthwalks are scheduled on a weekly basis and include two walks of up to 4.0miles (under 90 minutes) on Tuesdays and Thursdays and a Friday Beginners walk at the Maldon Promenade Park which is 1.0 to 1.5 miles (30 minutes). Extra healthwalks are scheduled in the Dengie area on Thursdays. All walks start at 10am and are led by specially trained walk leaders.

All the walks are FREE and mainly on Public Rights of Way footpaths. The paths are easy to walk on and are either flat or have a very slight gradient. Distances range between one to four miles. Longer walks are also available.

If you live or work in the above area, you are welcome to join in the scheme.

Maldon Country Walks for the Over 50s

This is an over 50s walk scheme. Walks are between 4 and 6 miles in length so not suitable for inactive beginners or those with health problems that require walks of a shorter distance.

Country Walks for the Over 50s are usually scheduled for the first Monday in the Month (except on Public Holidays). All walks, led by a team of trained volunteers, are FREE and take place in the Maldon and South Chelmsford locality.
