Walking for Health

Welcome

Welcome to the 2015 programme of Walking for Health walks. these walks offer 30 min, 60min and 90 minute walks for everyone to help improve your health, make friends and get to know your local neighboroughood.

Regular walks take place throughout Hinckley and Bosworth. We offer Health Walks shown on this page below, but we also have a number of recreational walking groups that offer a different experience.

What is a health walk?

The national 'Walking for Health' programme offers health walks designed to encourage people to take regular short walks in their local communities, to benefit their health. Health walks are offered at lengths of 30 minutes, 60 minutes and 90 minutes and are usually on surfaced paths with no sites to negotiate. So why not join in and start walking your way to health?

Benefits of walking
