Walk Durham

If you want to take your first steps in improving your health and fitness, or if you just want to stay healthy, come along and try our free, short, led health walks. They are taking place every week in local communities across County Durham.


Our Walk Durham, Run Durham and Cycle Durham programmes are currently on hold.
