Greenwich Get Walking

Greenwich Get Walking is a healthy walks scheme run by Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT), alongside the Royal Borough of Greenwich. This programme connects local residents with a wide range of free walking opportunities within the Borough of Greenwich, to improve physical health and wellbeing. Greenwich Get Walking is part of Ramblers, the biggest walking community in the UK which supports people to access green spaces and live healthier lifestyles. 

Walking can increase cardiovascular fitness and muscle strength, and reduce body fat. It burns calories, builds stamina and can make your heart healthier. Walking can also reduce stress, improve mood and quality of sleep. The interesting and varied walks with Greenwich Get Walking have a huge range of benefits for health improvement.

Greenwich Get Walking is commissioned by the Royal Borough of Greenwich and delivered by CACT. Walks with Greenwich Get Walking are free, fun and friendly - a perfect way to meet new people and get more active.
