Walking for Health

Walking for Health

Ever feel like it’d be nice to get out and about more often? Get a little more fresh air in your lungs? Be more active?

Vivacity are working with Walking for Health running a number of local walks in the Peterborough area. At the moment around 70,000 people are currently taking part in walks up and down the country. This low impact exercise is a great way to burn some extra calories while also getting chance to enjoy the local scenery.

We know it’s good for us and we know our health is important... it's FREE and you can do it every week!
