Walking in Oadby and Wigston

Walking is a great way to keep active and explore your local community. It's completely free to get started and doesn't require any fancy equipment, just a pair of shoes you find comfortable.

Even short regular walks can help make a difference to your physical and mental health.

Active Oadby & Wigston runs a group walk programme, free and accessible for anyone, and ran by local volunteers. Currently, our weekly walk details are as follows:

Tuesdays 10am meet @ Brocks Hill Visitor centre

Our volunteers also assist with 1 to 1 walking support for those who are physically and mentally vulnerable and/or socially isolated. If you or someone you know might benefit from this programme, please email active.together@oadby-wigston.gov.uk for more information.

Please note:

You are performing the exercises on and linked from our website at your own risk.

If you are unsure about your ability, it might be wise to start gradually and build up. Also consider discussing any concerns with your GP or other medical professionals.

Make sure to warm up and cool down to prevent injury, alongside staying hydrated.

Stop the exercises immediately if you feel faint or unwell, and if you still feel dizzy or unwell have a rest. Next time try something less strenuous, building up your activity gradually.

Finally, please continue to follow the government's guidance on how to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
