Ramblers Wellbeing Walks in Cumbria are co-ordinated by Active Cumbria and supported by Cumbria County Council and Carlisle City Council.
Part of the wider Ramblers national programme the charity is dedicated to removing barriers so everyone can enjoy walking. Ramblers Wellbeing Walks are short group walks which make it easier to start walking and stay active
On this page there are links to help you find walks in your local area. You can also find out more information about becoming a wellbeing walks walk leader.
All walks are led by trained Walk Leaders across the County, and provide a great opportunity not only to improve your health through regular walking but also to explore your local area whilst meeting new people. Walks aim to be suitable for people of all ages and abilities and our leaders will ensure that you walk at a pace that you find comfortable.
Wellbeing Walks Walk Leaders will be responsible for leading free, organised walks suitable for those new or returning to activity. Walks take place over easy ground, starting and finishing in a location familiar to your community. Ramblers Wellbeing Walks encourage people to not only get active but stay active, through supporting people in your community to 'join in' and ‘get up and out’.
There are exisiting groups that you may be able to join, but more often than not, you as a newly trained Walk Leader will need to create a group. Groups run best when there are multiple Walk Leaders so that the responsibility is shared.
There are 26 opportunities listed on the Activity Finder. To view local opportunities please select your local area.
