Get walking and improve your physical and mental health!

We all know we should probably do a bit more exercise, but often its hard when you’re busy, or maybe you feel shy or don’t have anyone to go with.  Well help is at hand!

Greenwich Get Active runs walks all over the borough covering a range of difficulty levels from absolute beginners to those looking for something a bit more challenging.  This fantastic initiative – Greenwich Get Walking – can connect you with a wide range of free walking opportunities within Royal Greenwich.

The walks are free, fun and friendly perfect to help you get active and meet new people.  Walking is good for your health. You can start small and build up to doing more activity over time.  It’s a great way to explore and can also save you money as an alternative to public transport or car.  If you’d like to take part, all you have to do is come along to the start point of one of the walks listed in this leaflet a few minutes early, so that one of our trained volunteer walk leaders can take your details. Then you’re free to take part in as many walks as you like, as often as you like.

The perfect way to get out and about, meet some new people and get fit in the process! What are you waiting for?
