The ‘Ramblers Wellbeing Walks’ is part of a national campaign to improve health and wellbeing simply by walking.

There are many such groups in Nottinghamshire, with trained and insured leaders, who take parties out for a gentle 2-6 mile stroll in their local area.

Details for many of these groups are listed here and you can contact the leaders for further information.

On your first walk please arrive early to complete a registration/health form.

Dogs on leads and children are normally allowed, but check – NO dogs at Rushcliffe Move and Mingle.

Bring any medication and inform the leader if in any difficulty during the walk

See website: www.ramblers.org.uk/wellbeing-walks

To find details of Wellbeing walks simply put a location such as Nottingham in the “Find a Wellbeing Walk” box and click Search. We have listed details of local Wellbeing Walk groups on this page.

It’s almost impossible not to feel good when we’re walking outdoors – it’s a natural mood-booster! And the great news is we don’t need to walk far or fast to feel its effects on our health and wellbeing. Simply getting out is a tonic for our minds and bodies, and it can be sociable too.

Almost all of us can manage a stroll, and Ramblers Wellbeing Walks make it easier to start walking and stay active. And you’ll certainly never be short of good company.

Research made public at the end of 2016 that about 80% of adults in the 40 to 60 age bracket don’t look after themselves by taking sufficient exercise.

Some walkers with the Mansfield ‘On Your Doorstep’ health group have improved so much they are joining the regular Ramblers!

Ramblers Wellbeing Walks are an ideal introduction to group walking if you have never tried it before. Local walks at an easy pace, trained leaders and an amiable group
around you – it becomes a comfortable, friendly way of recovering or improving your health.

Research shows that you can reduce your risk of contracting any one of about 35 serious diseases too.

Think about it. It’s got to be worth it to you!

Please read this carefully

  • Before leaving home, be sure you are fit enough and equipped sufficiently to undertake your walk.If you’re unsure of your fitness level, try a short easy walk first—it’s much better to find a walk a little too slow than to make yourself miserable and exhausted.
  • Most of our walks are off-road in rural areas. Please have suitable footwear and clothing for both walk and weather (you can check our web-site for the day’s weather).
