Walking is the easiest, cheapest and one of the most sociable ways to become more active.
Health walks are free organised walks in rural areas and towns, led by volunteers. Our health walks take place at various times of the day, throughout all districts in Lincolnshire.
Walking is a fun free way to improve your physical health and it’s a great way to socialise and meet new friends too. The walks can help boost your fitness levels, improve your wellbeing as well as helping to reduce stress levels, improve flexibility and even help lower blood pressure.
All walks are led by specially trained volunteers who are always on hand to offer friendly encouragement and support.
Everyone is welcome and there’s no need to book – just turn up! Make sure you’re wearing comfortable clothes and sensible walking shoes too.
Lincolnshire Co-op Community and Health Walks
Co-ordinator Carly Pillay says:
“We help run more than 60 regular volunteer-run health walks across Lincolnshire’s seven districts, which all come under the national Ramblers Walking for Health scheme.”
“Health walks can benefit people in lots of ways. As well as improving people’s physical wellbeing, walkers can meet others and enjoy their local area, enhancing their mental health.
“Walk lasts between 30 and 90 minutes and take place on a regular basis. Groups cater for different abilities so everyone can enjoy walks at their own pace.”
