Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier.
What a perfect setting for walking in the countryside? North Kesteven is privileged to a vast open countryside with fascinating heritage and diverse wildlife. There are many walking opportunities for all ages and abilities ranging in distance from location to location.
Walking is underrated as a form of exercise but it is ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels who want to be more active. For this reason, the NK Walking Festival has been set up in order to promote walking and the opportunities North Kesteven has to offer. It is a week-long FREE event taking place from Monday 14 to Sunday 20 July and will incorporate the existing walking routes available and are designed for all ages and abilities.
Walks have been carefully selected for the event and are taken from the current walking provision in North Kesteven which are:-
- The Stepping Out Network
- North Kesteven Health Walks
- Waddle Toddle Family Walks
- The Spires and Steeples Arts and Heritage Trail
