Step Out Sheffield - Health Walks in and around Sheffield

Step out Sheffield has weekly health walks at 29 locations across the city. Our walks are free, accredited by Ramblers:Walking for Health, and delivered by trained and experienced health walk leaders. We welcome people of all ages and all levels of ability and fitness.


In order that walkers can choose a safe and enjoyable walk to suit their ability our volunteers often offer a choice of two or three different walks at each location.

Health walks are as much about social inclusion as physical fitness and we encourage walkers to join in with the socialising after the walk by stopping for a natter over a cup of tea or coffee.

Walks rarely last more than an hour and the shortest walks may be only 15 minutes.

All walks are delivered at a pace to suit the walker. It is not the leader who sets the pace! We walk in parks, woodlands and green spaces where ever possible.   

You do not need any special equipment, just a comfortable pair of shoes (waterproof in winter) and an umbrella.
