Every week there are 17 volunteer led walks across the whole of Wokingham Borough. 

The walks and how to join

For details of all our walks and how to join:

Complete the Walker Registration Form (PDF document) before you join. 

The walks can help you improve your health by walking briskly. But don't worry, you certainly don't have to be fighting fit as there is always a leader and a back marker so that everyone can walk at their own pace. 

All of the walks are graded so you can work your way up from a short gentle stroll (20-30 minutes) to a 3 mile walk (about an hour.) All our walks are under 90 minutes.

Please return to the sports team or hand to a walk leader.
