Walk Training

Sunday 20th January

What is Hiking?

Hiking is walking in the natural environment as a recreational activity.

Hiking is a natural exercise that promotes physical fitness, is economical and convenient, and requires no special equipment. Hiking is basic to many sporting activities and is also a widely recommended and practiced form of physical training. The ability to walk considerable distances without becoming overtired enhances the enjoyment of such other activities as bird-watching, nature walks, orienteering, and even sightseeing.


Make your Move

The greatest benefits to our physical and mental health comes when we go from doing no physical activity at all to doing just a little bit!
