Start Walking and Enjoy Country Walks

A Sunday afternoon spent leisurely walking and rambling in the great British countryside is medicine for the soul. With so many beautiful country walks available, finding one that’s within easy reach of your home shouldn’t present a problem.

Whatever the season, a country walk is a health benefit to all who participate, increasing blood circulation, strengthening the heart and other muscles, and leaving the walker feeling invigorated and energised. Yes, it’s true. Rather than feeling weary after walking, you’ll find that a country walk will leave you with more energy than ever!

Before setting out on your country walk, it’s important to check the weather forecast. After all, you don’t want to have to carry heavy coats, scarves and other cold-weather clothing while walking if it’s going to be a scorcher. This is especially important in spring and autumn, when weather changes can be radical. Comfortable walking boots are essential regardless of the weather.

A back-pack is an essential part of walking equipment, and if you’re planning to go walking regularly, it’s worth investing in a quality backpack that will be comfortable to wear. Your choice should be big enough to carry a light-weight waterproof jacket, a thermos for warm drinks, an insulated pad for sitting on, plasters and other emergency medical supplies plus enough room for snacks. Try one of our outdoor equipment shops and suppliers for your clothing and apparell.

Where you decide to take your country walk and how much walking you do will depend on your level of fitness. A nice, easy ramble along country lanes, enjoying the flora and fauna of the hedgerows, is often more than enough for those who aren’t used to strenuous walking, while other will prefer the challenge of hill walking, choosing country walks that take them into more varied terrain.

Too many of us spend most of our time indoors, or in the heavily polluted atmosphere of cities and large towns. By participating in country walks with some of the rambling clubs listed here you’ll have the chance to enjoy the fresh air of the countryside, take in the scents, hear the sounds, and, perhaps most important of all, walking will improve your health.

If you are looking for some new apparel or outdoor equipment then you can either have a look through our directory of outdoor retail specialists or you could check out Fitness Footwear or Blackleaf who both offer a large selection of clothing, footwear and equipment from all the top walking brands.

Users can submit their information to our complimentary listings and can manage them free of charge in our complimentary listings. A full search facility is available or you can find a listing near you by reviewing the County listings.

A celebratory event for you and your friends and family- Walk to Remember

Marie Curie is encouraging people to get together with friends and family and walk 10k (6.2miles) around picturesque Beaulieu on the evening of Saturday 8th August. The walk will take you through the woodland and heath land surrounding the Beaulieu Estate, starting at The National Motor Museum, giving you the opportunity to see its stunning surroundings as the sun sets. Afterwards you are invited to stay and enjoy a picnic party, with food, music and entertainment. The evening will finish at 10pm, the time when many Marie Curie Nurses will be starting their night shift, providing care to people with terminal illnesses and their families in their own homes. This will be marked with a speech from a local Nurse and a fireworks display to celebrate their valuable work.
Registration
Registration is £10 and  this includes a free Walk to Remember T-Shirt (Children under 16 go free; on the night registration is £20). There is a fundraising ask of £100, which pays for five hours of care from Marie Curie. All funds raised will help Marie Curie provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones, whether that's at home, or at a Marie Curie Hospice.
Walk to Remember is a great opportunity to get together with friends and family, and think of loved ones that have passed away, whilst taking in some of the country's beautiful scenery.  By signing up for Walk to Remember in Beaulieu, you'll be helping Marie Curie provide expert care, guidance and support to help people living with a terminal illness get the most from their time.
If you have any queries about the event, please contact Marie Curie Cancer Care on 0845 052 4184 or visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/walktoremember

Please note there will be plenty of free parking available.
Volunteers needed
If the walk is not for you, Marie Curie are always looking for volunteers to help on the evening of the event. Join them in one of a variety of volunteering roles such as registration, marshalling or selling raffle tickets.  You can then join your family and friends for a picnic after they have finished the walk. Please call Carina Stirling on 02075 997247 or 07887 513626 for more details.
