Walking for Health

Walking is a great way to get fit and explore what's on your doorstep.

Want to get more active? Then we're here to help! Walking is a great way to get fit, explore what's on your doorstep and make new friends.

All our walks are FREE OF CHARGE and there's no need to book in advance. All walks start and finish at Ripley Leisure Centre and are led by trained walk leaders who ensure that walkers are able to walk at their own pace.

We recommend you wear sturdy flat footwear and bring a waterproof with you just in case! On your first walk please arrive 5 minutes early to register.

Easy Walking - Friday 13:00 - 14:00

Suitable for those new to exercise, returning to exercise after illness or injury or would just like some company.

Ready for more of a challenge? - Tuesday 11:00 - 12:30

This progression walk is a little longer, slightly hillier and may occasionally be muddy!

We look forward to you joining our walking group but should you want any further information please contact the centre on 01773 514727 or email amanda.gowing@ambervalley.gov.uk
