Walking for Health

Run by Woking Mind, “Ramblers Walking For Health” is your local Walking for Health scheme. Our weekly walks take place across the boroughs of Woking and Runnymede. Our walks are free, fun and friendly – perfect to help you get active and meet new people.

All walks are a maximum of 90 minutes. We also have weekly ‘starter’ walks (a max of 30 mins)  in the Woking area – perfect if you’re new to exercise, have a health condition, need a very gentle pace.

Please note that well behaved dogs on leads are welcome on our walks (although a few routes are suitable for assistance dogs only and are labelled accordingly on the specific walk details/ programme).

If you want to know more before you start, just get in touch with Tasha Feddery (walks coordinator) email: [email protected] or call 07473 404 962 / 01483 757461. There is also a dedicated Twitter channel for updates, visit: @WalkWoking and @WalkRunnymede.
