Walking for Health

Get in Touch:

Ever feel like it’d be nice to get out and about more often? Get a little more fresh air in your lungs? Be more active? Lots of us wish we did more exercise. We know it’s good for us and we know our health’s important.

It’s FREE and you can do it every week!

Vivacity are working with Walking for Health and are running local walks in the Peterborough area, details can be found below. At the moment around 70,000 people are currently taking part in walks up and down the country. This low impact exercise is a great way to burn some extra calories while also getting chance to enjoy the local scenery.

The scheme is growing all the time, perhaps you have what it takes to be a Walk Leader?
