Oxford Health Walks

About Us

Do you enjoy getting outdoors, walking and meeting new people? Or are you considering starting some gentle exercise?

All walks are FREE to attend and are normally between 1-3 miles in length (30 - 60 minutes).

They are volunteer led and suitable for beginners or those returning to exercise as they are taken at a distance and pace suitable for everyone. Anyone is welcome regardless of age or ability, but we do ask that young children are accompanied by an adult.

Please note that walks will not go ahead if there is severe rainfall, snow or ice.

Our Walks


Due to the developing COVID-19 advice we have made the decision to suspend all Oxford Health Walks until further notice. We are sorry for any disappointment this might cause but hope you understand that the health and wellbeing of our volunteer Walk Leaders as well as our walkers is of the upmost importance. 

Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Scheme Co-ordinator, Emma Collins at ecollins@oxford.gov.uk
