or click on their website for others in the County

Walking is an almost perfect exercise and is one of the best ways to improve physical and mental health.  To get health benefits from walking, you only need to walk for 30 minutes, five days a week.  Joining the Active Norfolk 'fit together' Health Walks will help you reach that goal.

NB: You will be asked to complete a short questionnaire before your first walk in order to join the walks scheme, so please arrive 15 minutes before the start of your first walk.

The walks are all graded, circular and led by staff and volunteer leaders. Watch this space for details of health walks taking place in our area over the next few months or for more information tel. 01603 423377 look on the website ~ www.activenorfolk.org/fittogether or e-mail info@activenorfolk.org

*P/W = Progression walk; These are our hardest walks usually because
they are over 4 miles but under 6. Please only come on these if you have completed a Grade 3 walk comfortably. These walks take longer than 90 mins based on the speed of an average walker.
