Help break a record during Walking Month


Gadebridge Health WalkWant to be part of something big? Hertfordshire County Council’s Countryside and Rights of Way Service is attempting to set a new record for the greatest number of Health Walkers out walking in one day.

On Monday 14 May, Hertfordshire Health Walks will be offering a bumper 25 extra free Health Walks – with two taking place in Hemel Hempstead. You can join the walks at The White Bridge in Gadebridge Park. There is a 10am start for a one-hour route for moderate walkers, or an 11.15am start for novices - this will be a short 20 to 30-minute walk over flat, even ground at a gentle pace. This walk is also suitable for wheelchairs and buggies.

Visit Hertfordshire Health Walks to register as a new walker or arrive 15 minutes before the walk to complete a sign-up form. Walks last between 30 and 90 minutes and are free of charge.

Whether you're already a seasoned Health Walker or fancy trying it for the first time, there are plenty of opportunities to get active and help break a Hertfordshire Health Walks record. The number to beat is 630 walkers, set on the Mass Health Walk day in 2015.
