Somerset Health Walks

Many of our walks have now returned across Somerset. Please click on the scheme area below to view their information about what walks are currently available.

Following the government guidance changes on 16th Aug, people fully vaccinated or under 18 will not need to self-isolate after close contact with someone who has COVID-19. You’ll still need to take a PCR test and self-isolate if it’s positive, or if you have symptoms.

Most of the previous Covid restrictions have been removed from organised sport however we are awaiting the full guidance update following the 16th August so will update and share our guidance once this is available.

Please continue to follow NHS advice by not attending a walk if you (or anyone in your household if you are over 18 and not vaccinated) has symptoms. We look forward to welcoming you on one of our walks!

What is a health walk?

It's a gentle walk done on a regular basis for well-being. It can help you to feel good, to have more energy, to sleep better and to manage your weight. There are so many benefits from health walking - we're sure you'll see a difference in yourself even after your first walk!
