Sunderland City Councils' Wellness Walking Programme

About Us

Sunderland City Councils' Sport & Leisure Team currently offers the current weekly Wellness Walking Programme:

Led Health Walks:  A series of short, FREE, led walks, that take place weekly at various locations across the City of Sunderland. The walks are accredited by the National Walking for Health Programme and last between 30 to 90 minutes.

The walks encompass a wide variety of terrains within the City of Sunderland, ranging from coast to greenspaces to local parks and urban areas, and are a great way to get out in the fresh air, meet new people and improve your mental and physical health and wellbeing.

Walks are delivered by friendly, qualified Volunteer Walk Leaders who tailor the walks to be suitable for all ages, fitness levels and abilities. It is advisable to dress for the weather and wear comfortable supportive footwear.

Other services outside Walking for Health walks include:

Nordic Walking:  Walking Poles are provided and there is no need to book.

Mums on the Move:  Weekly led walks for new mums and their babies (in their buggies!).

Self guided Heritage & Park Walks: Available to download as a pdf from Sunderland City Council's Active Sunderland website or hard copies can be posted on request.

 

All new walkers are asked to contact the scheme co-ordinators to check the current walking programme and for any further information on walking opportunities in Sunderland.  Please contact:
