Health Walks

Lincoln City Foundation are excited to run these Health Walks in conjunction with Lincolnshire Coop and Ramblers Walking for Health! We have several different walks starting from locations in the Lincoln area. These walks are led by a trained Walk Leader and will explore several areas of the city, allowing participants to take in the wonderful world around them and feel close to nature. Learn about your local area and its wildlife, meet new friends and boost your mental wellbeing.

Our Health Walks are a great way to meet new people while taking part in gentle exercise, you are welcome to bring friends, family, and dogs.

A great way to meet new people while taking part in gentle exercise. 

All Health Walks will be run in accordance with the latest guidance from both the government and the Ramblers Walking for Health. Walks are FREE of charge and will last between 30 and 60 minutes. The routes start and finish at the same location.

Walking is a fantastic way to improve your physical health. Here are just a few positive things that walking can do for your health:

  •    Helps to lower blood pressure

  •    Helps improve sleep patterns

  •    Improves the flexibility and strength of joint

  •    Maintain/lose weight

  •    Reduces stress levels

  •    Reduces the risk of various diseases and illnesses

Positively Impact your Mental Health With Sport

Even short bursts of regular exercise has a proven positive impact on mental health. Which is why joining us for Health Walks could be the first step for better mental health for you. Here are just a few ways in which sport and physical activity can positively impact your mental health.

  • Improve your Mood: Exercise releases feel-good hormones, which tell your brain to improve your mood. Recent studies showed that people who categorised themselves as feeling low noted a significant improvement in mood after they undertook physical activity.

  • Reduce Stress: People who partake in regular physical activity often have lower stress levels.

  • Increase Self Esteem: Exercise can often help you to feel better about yourself.

  • Tackle Depression and Anxiety: GP's often prescribe regular exercise as part of a Mental Health programme to help sufferers of Depression and Anxiety. Taking part in regular activity and sport empowers individuals to self manage their recovery.

  • Sleep Better: Physical Activity will help to tire you out during the day and therefore help you to get a better nights sleep.

  • Connect with new people: Sporting activities provide the opportunity to connect with like-minded new people, without the pressure of finding a common ground.
