We promote walking as a form of exercise.  Walking is a fun, free and natural exercise that’ll help you to get fit, improve your health, lose weight, burn calories and make friends.

Get Walking and Get Healthy!

Following the great success of Get Walking Keep Walking programmes in locations including Birmingham, Sheffield and Manchester over the last seven years the Ramblers will be expanding it as part of Walking for Health, the national network of health walk schemes in England.

We’ll soon be closing the Get Walking Keep Walking website but you can still find plenty of inspiration to start walking, information on short walks and health walks you can join and resources to help you get walking on your own on the Ramblers website, along with the latest news and views from the world of walking.

Information on Get Walking Leicester can be found at www.ramblers.org.uk/getwalkingleicester. Information on Get Walking Swindon can be found at www.ramblers.org.uk/getwalkingswindon.
