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.
You can also download the December 2021 Heart and Sole newsletter.
Walk leaders and volunteering
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.
Bank holidays, Christmas and New Year
There will be no walks running on bank holidays, including Christmas Day or Boxing Day. Walks over the Christmas and New Year period may be altered. Please check each walk before you attend.
