Nordic Walking and Longer Walks
If you've been attending Healthwalks for a while you may feel ready for a new challenge. A Healthwalk is officially a walk that is either no more than 3 miles in length or takes no more than 1.5 hours to complete, it is also a free walk that requires no special equipment or training. However, we recognise that many of our regular walkers would like to push themselves further so you may be interested in some of our progression activities such as our Nordic Walking for Health Progression Walks or some of the other more challenging walks in our Healthwalks Programme.
If you are interested in longer walks then you might also want to contact one of the groups below:
