Scottish Borders Council - Walk it

Walk it aims to help people become more physically active through health walks. Our walks are short, safe, social, low level and led by trained walk leader volunteers. Health walks are targeted at people who are currently inactive. Walk length and pace is adapted to suit walkers. Just 30 minutes a day can help to reduce the risk of a number of debilitating and life threatening conditions.
