COVID-19 changes

In line with updated government regulations and the ongoing lockdown, all our Healthwalks are currently suspended.

In the meantime, we're offering a new Healthwalks World Walking Challenge to follow on from the successful spring lockdown challenge. Find out all the ways you can get involved in the Healthwalks World Walking Challenge.

Taking part in outdoor exercise and physical activity, like walking regularly, is encouraged as long as you follow the latest government guidelines.  

Remember the safe walking rules - you should:

  • exercise outdoors no more than once a day and for a maximum of an hour
  • only walk on your own, with your household or support bubble or alone with one person from another household
  • aim to keep 2 metres, which is 6 feet, away from anyone you pass
  • avoid traveling too far to your walking destination - walk close to home where possible
  • consider taking antibacterial gel and a face covering if you are likely to be in busy places or to use a toilet or other facilities

About Healthwalks

Healthwalks are a great way for people of all ages and abilities to be active and improve their health. 

They vary from under one mile on the flat, to more challenging walks of up to 5 miles in local parks and green spaces. 

Dogs are welcome but they must be well behaved and on a lead. 

Volunteering as a Healthwalk Leader

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, we're not training new walk leaders at the moment but we hope to restart training in the spring.

We'd love to hear from you in the meantime, so if you're interested in volunteering, send an email to healthwalks@brighton-hove.gov.uk. Our Volunteer Co-ordinator will be happy to chat with you more about the role, and can add you to the waiting list for training.
