Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier.
Walking is ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels who want to be more active.
Regular walking has been shown to reduce the risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, stroke and some cancers.
Basildon Council, Brentwood Council, sports organisations and other groups organise walks led by trained volunteers in the local parks and countryside. There may be a charge for some of the organised walks.
