Walking for Health (WfH) is the largest national body promoting and setting the standards for led health walks.
WfH aims to encourage people, particularly those who take little exercise, to do regular short walks in their communities. They support over 600 local health walk schemes. Please visit their website to use the Walkfinder to locate a Health Walking scheme in other areas.
Goring Gap Health Walks is another long established health walking scheme, based in Goring (ten miles north-west of Reading).
The Get Oxfordshire Active (GO Active) project aims to get adults aged over 16 doing moderate exercise for 30 minutes at least three times a week. At present only 23.2% of adults in the county achieve this amount of exercise.
Sonning Common Explorers provide free walks and activities for the Sonning Common, South Oxfordshire area, ranging from 1 mile to 12 mile routes. Each walk contains a map, detailed directions and an activity to complete on the way around the route. A further selection of activities are also included, which can be undertaken on any of the walks.
