Gentle Walks

4 x 3 hour sessions
Venue: Various locations
Date: Every Monday, beginning 2nd September 2019
Time: 10am – 1pm

For many, regular walking has proved has to be of tremendous help in developing their mental wellbeing. It is by far the cheapest and most accessible form of exercise. But be warned, it can be addictive and great fun! These sessions are for those who want to take their walking to the next level. The walks will be at a moderate pace. It is hoped to include some more rural parts of the borough. No specialist equipment is required although, depending on the weather, some of the routes may include sections which are a little muddy, so it is important to be prepared.

The distance covered and the pace set will be determined by the group. The aim is to enjoy rather than to train. Participants will be encouraged to work within their personal capabilities whilst at the same time exploring just what can be achieved.

Walking for the More Experienced

4 x 3 hour sessions
Venue: Various locations
Date: Every Monday, beginning 21st October 2019
Time: 10am – 1pm

Walking is, in many ways, the most natural form of exercise that humans can undertake. It is free, requires little in terms of expensive equipment and, unless taken to an advanced level, does not require specialist training. Regular walking has been shown to have a hugely beneficial impact on both our mental and physical health.

The sessions will involve walks taken at a moderate pace around various attractive locations taken across the borough as a whole. The distances covered will be determined by the group themselves. All locations selected will be carefully chosen in terms of accessibility. This is a great way to become more physically active in a relaxed and sympathetic manner. Our aim is that students will find the walks thoroughly enjoyable and will go on to include regular walks as a part of their daily lives.

The venues will include some of the larger parks and open spaces found throughout Bromley and will be readily accessible by means of public transport.
