Rutland Walking for Health Scheme

Our array of Walking for Health Groups offer a friendly, inclusive, vibrant atmosphere for all newcomers and regular walkers. They aim to get you out in the beautiful Rutland countryside, exercise your body, mind and soul while having a good old natter.

All groups are open for anyone to attend, no matter of your age, ability or size. The groups will offer their support, friendship and knowledge to all. Just turn up and have a go!

All walks are led by trained walk leaders who are bursting with enthusiasm and well planned routes. All of Rutland's Healthy Walks are registered with Walking for Health, including insurance.

Our Walks

Walking is great for your health and puts a spring in your step. With Walking for Health, you can take part in a free short walk nearby to help you get active and stay active at a pace that works for you. It's a great way to stretch your legs, explore what's on your doorstep, and make new friends. Walks go ahead whatever the weather! New walkers are always welcome regardless of age or fitness levels. There is a social element with refreshments available afterwards.
