Get Walking Lanarkshire

Important update

Sadly, due to tighter restrictions the health walks have been cancelled until further notice.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Introduction

Improve your health and wellbeing by walking more often

Walking is a great form of exercise. It is free, most people can do it, you don't need any special equipment and walking has many health benefits.

To encourage people to walk more often we run a programme of weekly health walks covering both North and South Lanarkshire.

All walks are free, short and gentle and last no longer than one hour. Everybody is welcome to join and the walks are particularly suitable for people who are not very active, people with a health condition, recovering from illness or injury and people who cannot walk any distance or at speed.

The walking routes are easy, uneven paths and steep inclines are avoided.  With a walk leader at the front and at the back, you can walk at your own pace and nobody will be left behind.

Joining a health walk is a great way to meet new people, explore your local area and get healthier and happier at the same time.

Volunteering opportunities

Would you like to help others to become more active? Then volunteering as a health walk leader might be for you.

Free training will be provided.  Email us for more information.
