Improve your health and wellbeing by walking more often

Get Walking Lanarkshire

Walking is a great form of exercise as it has so many health benefits. One way to increase the amount of walking you do is to join a local health walk group.

A health walk is a short, safe, low-level walk ranging from 10 minutes to one hour, with a pace to suit the individuals in the group. It is completely free, safe and gentle so it is the ideal way for most people to become more active.

Joining a health walk group is a great way to meet new people and explore the outdoors in your local area. Health walks are led by trained volunteers who aim to make the walks as friendly and fun as possible and no booking is required - simply turn up on the day with some comfortable footwear and you're ready to go.

Dementia Friendly Walking                                                                                       dementia walks logo

Our health walks have received dementia friendly walking accreditation status, which means that our walk leaders have completed dementia friendly walk leader training and our routes have been risk assessed to be dementia inclusive. People with dementia and carers are welcome on all or our walks. However our timetable details which walks are led by a dementia friendly walk leader.
