The Salisbury Walking for Health group is organised and run by volunteers, there are currently 9 trained leaders who lead walks every Thursday morning. The walks take place in and arround the city of Salisbury with occasinal walks in Laverstock and Wilton.
There are three walks available:
Footsteps to Fitness: these introductory walks for beginners will take place on the last Thursday of the month. The walks will be no more than 30 minutes in length and suitable for new walkers, those recovering from illness or injury and anyone who would like to keep active into older age. Come along and find out more about how walking can help improve your health and fitness with the support of a welcoming, friendly group.
Walk this Way: are walks suitable for people who want to increase their fitness with longer walks of up to one hour duration. The walks may have moderate slopes, steps and uneven surfaces so suitable shoes are essental. The distance is tailored to suit individual needs.
'Doorstep Walks' are a further progression with walks lasting up to 90 minutes on more diffult terrain.
