Walking for Health is England’s largest network of health walks with more than 360 active walking schemes. It aims to help people across the country lead a more active lifestyle – especially those who do little exercise – by encouraging them to get out and walk more regularly.
It’s for you – no matter what your age. If you don’t walk much at the moment or wish to improve your fitness, the scheme could be just what you need.
