An important update.

In-line with current government guidance, all health walks are currently suspended in order to keep everyone as safe as possible.

How can you stay active while you're at home?

Sport England have provided some useful ideas about how to stay active if you are at home.

We look forward to seeing you on health walk in the future.

We’re coordinating and supporting a network of health walks across the county.

There are more than 60 regular, volunteer-run health walks across Lincolnshire’s seven districts, that all come under the national Ramblers Walking for Health scheme.  

The free walks can help boost your fitness and wellbeing, however you can gain so much more - learning about your local area, meeting new friends and improving your mental wellbeing. The walks are led by friendly, specially trained volunteers who are on hand to provide encouragement and support.

Discover the great outdoors with walks in the Lincolnshire countryside or strolls through local beauty spots.

What is a health walk?

All walks are free of charge and can last between 30 and 90 minutes. The routes start and finish at the same location. They give you a chance to learn about your local area and its wildlife, meet new friends and boost your mental wellbeing.

Walking is a great way to improve your physical health, here's a few positive things that walking can do for your health:

👣 Helps to lower blood pressure

👣 Improves sleep patterns

👣 Improves the flexibility and strength of joints

👣 Maintain/lose weight

👣 Reduces stress levels

👣 Reduces the risk of various diseases and illnesses

☕ Our walks are also very sociable and after most of them there is the chance for a chat and a cup of tea in a nearby café.
