South Leeds Lakers launch new Walk to Fitness health walks

The new Walk to Fitness health walks led by the South Leeds Lakers, with support from the Get Set Leeds Local team at Leeds City Council, will hold its debut walk on Sunday 25 July 2021 at 10am from Cross Flatts Park.

Following the launch, regular weekly walks will take place on weekends at various times and from different locations. Walks will generally be around 5k/3miles and should take about an hour. Some walks will have options for beginners if you’d like to try out a short walk before joining a longer one. All walks will be free of charge and booking will be required.

Walk leader, Linda Featherstone, said:

“Walking is a great activity to improve health and wellbeing. The walks are intended to improve physical and mental wellbeing in a friendly and social environment. We are excited about our new initiative and would love a diverse range of people to join us. Please give us a try and get to know people in your local area whilst improving your fitness”.

There will be a limit to the number of spaces allocated to a walk leader of 15 people for safety reasons. For the launch on 25 July 2021 there are plans to have at least four walk leaders taking groups out to explore the local area.

Please book your place using the Google registration form, which will be available on the @southleedslakersWtF Facebook page a few days before the event. A place cannot be guaranteed unless you pre-book.
