Eastleigh Borough Healthwalks Scheme
Regular walking can help prevent Heart disease, Obesity, High Blood Pressure, Osteoporosis and Diabetes.
The walks take about 1 hour and and are a great way to socialise and get some exercise. Everyone is welcome. The walks are led by a qualified Volunteer Walk Leader and take place rain or shine! Most of our walks offer 2 routes, one covering 3 miles in the hour and the other covering approximately 2 miles in the hour. The latter aimed at new walkers and those recovering from illness.
Our scheme now has over 14,000 walkers attending per year.
We vary our walks from each destination.

With 10 walks taking part in 5 days and over 230 people taking part every week, the walks are becoming more and more popular, so we are always looking for more leaders. If you can spare some time and enjoy walking then please give us a call as we would love to hear from you. It does not have to be a commitment every week, just whenever you can is helpful!
For more information call 02380 684813 (Healthwalks Office) based at Places Leisure Eastleigh and speak to Wendy Sheaf or Stephanie Bull (Healthwalks Co-ordinators).
