We all know the importance of exercise.  From losing weight, to boosting mental health and generally improving overall health and well-being, exercise plays a vital role in our lives.  Sometimes the motivation is there, but the inspiration and services can be hard to find.  Please use this page for ideas for keeping fit, whether it's at home or as part of a local scheme, there is something that will suit everyone of all shapes and sizes, and of all abilities.  Start exercising and you will quickly reap the rewards and benefits.

In England, half of all adults are not active enough to benefit their health. This means that they are at risk of developing serious illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Walking for Health is England’s largest network of health walks with over 400 active schemes, helping people across the country lead a more active lifestyle. We’ve done this with great success for over 14 years, improving the mental and physical well-being of thousands of people.

Our walks

1,800 weekly walks are supported by around 8,300 friendly, specially trained volunteers who are on hand to provide encouragement and support, and make sure no one gets left behind. Our walks are short and over easy terrain, and are open to everyone but are especially aimed at those who are least active. Every week we reach 20,200 walkers, supporting them to experience the benefits of getting and staying active.

Many of our walkers start walking to improve their health, but find it easy to keep coming back because of all the new friends they’ve made. So as well as all the physical health benefits, Walking for Health is also great for your social life!

All schemes across England are supported by a national team providing free promotion, advice and tools to help raise awareness of Walking for Health amongst policy-makers, funders and partners as well as potential walkers.

Our partnership

Walking for Health is run by the Ramblers and Macmillan Cancer Support. By sharing their walking and health expertise they enable our schemes to offer short, free, local health walks in communities across England. The partnership demonstrates both organisations ambition to help more people, including those affected by cancer, discover the joys and health benefits of walking.
