Trafford - Walk for Health

About Us

 

Walk for Health - Trafford is an organisation run by local volunteers, in partnership with Walking for Health, Trafford CCG, Public Health Trafford and Sale Sports Club. Our walks are promoted by local surgeries, but  anyone can join in: you don’t have to have a specific health problem and it doesn’t matter what size, shape or age you are!

Our wellbeing walks range from 30 -60 mins and are suitable both for those wishing to start walking, or those wanting to improve their fitness, meet new people and discover open spaces in their local area. All walks are led by a trained Walk Leader, who will discuss any individual needs at the start of the walk, and plan support as necessary.

Walking is a great way of getting the recommended 30 mins moderate exercise a day, 5 days a week – without needing any special skills or having to buy expensive kit. The walks shown here are FREE and do not require booking. Just turn up on the day and enjoy yourself. All you need is a comfortable pair of shoes and clothing suitable for the weather!

NB: New walkers will be asked to complete a short registration form.

Our current walks are listed below. For more details, including date, time and meeting place, just click on the name of the walk you are interested in. We expect to start walks in other parts of Trafford over the next year – watch this space!

If you want to join a walk or volunteer to help lead walks contact the Trafford scheme co-ordinator, Dave Walmsley, on dwalmsley@uk2.net
