1 of 3

Over 360 active walking schemes across England and 11 here in Greater Manchester

Walking for Health aim to help people across the country lead a more active lifestyle. For over 14 years, the walking groups have been improving the mental and physical well-being of thousands of people. Since April 2019 Ramblers Walking for Health has been run with support from Sport England.

Walking for Health walks are developed to be accessible to people who have done little or no exercise before, or who need more support to stay active. The programme aims to provide everyone with access to a short, free and friendly health walk within easy reach of where they live.

The Ramblers Walking for Health team delivers strategic guidance for the overall programme and provides schemes with support and free resources such as training, insurance, and national promotion. The local schemes are run by a variety of organisations including councils, the NHS, charities and voluntary groups.
You can find out more about the Walking for Health Groups via our walking groups page or if you are looking for a walk outside of Greater Manchester go to thier walk finder.
