Walk Durham is inviting people across the county to join them for a seasonal stroll this January as part of a free walking programme across County Durham.

Stephen Clough, scheme coordinator of Walk Durham, said: “Winter is a wonderful time to get outdoors and enjoy your surroundings in the fresh air and Walk Durham offers an easy way to head out for a winter wander with friends and family.

“A short walk is a great way to help kick start your new year fitness resolutions.

“Our walks are open to anyone, no matter how fit you currently are, and our specially trained volunteers will be on hand to give you a warm welcome.

“Plus you don’t need any fancy kit or specialist equipment.

“Who knows, what starts out as a one-off walk could lead to life-long friendships and a serious walking habit.”

Walk Durham offers free, short group walks throughout the year as part of Walking for Health, England’s largest network of health walk schemes, delivered in partnership with Ramblers and Macmillan Cancer Support.

The walks are perfect for those new to walking, and those who want to meet new people while keeping active.
