Heart and Sole walks

Heart and sole walks hero.png

Heart and Sole is a free health walk scheme, run by volunteers with support from our Community Sport and Wellbeing Team. They run regular led walks all across Chelmsford, linked to The Ramblers "Walking for Health" programme. 

Come and walk through some of Chelmsford's most beautiful countryside, while you get fit and meet like-minded people. Choose from a variety of routes, running on a different days and catering for all levels of ability.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, there may be fewer walks running, with limited spaces. This means you should check each walk for changes.

Walk leaders and volunteering 

Cancelled walks

Unfortunately, we sometimes have to cancel walks due to the weather or if we don't have enough walk leaders. 

A walk leader will attend the walk even if we think the walk will be cancelled, to tell those who have attended that conditions are not suitable. The exception to this is severe snow and ice, when we don't expect our volunteer walk leaders to cancel in person for safety reasons. 

Christmas and New Year

There will be no walks running on Christmas Day or Boxing Day and walks over the Christmas and New Year period may be altered. Please check each walk before you attend.
