There are 25 Walking for Health walks to choose from in Basingstoke. With daily weekday daytime walks, weekly evening walks and monthly family weekend walks, there is something to suit everyone’s schedule.
There are now over 200 people a week Walking for Health in Basingstoke and the surrounding areas. The walk programme is a gentle way to begin to exercise. All walks have a walk leader and a back marker, so no matter what your pace you can join in our friendly walks.
A walk is held in the daytime every week day and there is a very popular Wednesday evening walk for those who like a cooler walk. There is also a lovely Sunday afternoon walk once a month in a beautiful rural area in Oakley, a walk for the whole family to enjoy.
Joining a health walk is a great way to improve your health and wellbeing and to meet new people. The walks are ideal for those who would like to improve their health by increasing their physical activity levels. They also offer a fantastic opportunity to explore different parts of Basingstoke.
All walks are led by trained volunteer walk leaders. They are there to ensure the route is safe. Before the walks, the council publishes walk distance and time estimates so you know what to expect before you set off.
