Walk Moray Programme

Did you know that to be healthy, adults need to be active for at least 30 minutes a day? That wasn’t difficult in the past, as we were much more physically active in our daily lives. Now that we have machines to do most of our work for us and rely more and more on cars for transport, most people aren’t active enough to be healthy.

Walking is a great way to be active – we are all designed to walk with no need to buy special equipment or learn a new skill. It’s free, you can to it any time you like and all you need is a comfy pair of shoes and waterproofs for the weather!

The walks in the Walk Moray programme are all graded to encourage you to start slowly and build up gradually:

level 1 walks

Level 1 walks are all about half a mile long, which will take you between 15 and 20 minutes, are as flat as possible and with good walking surfaces. Most of them are suitable for wheelchairs and buggies.

level 2 walks

Level 2 walks are a little longer, some with slight inclines and maybe a little rougher underfoot, but still less than 45 minutes long. Some of these are suitable for wheelchairs and buggies, but may need more care especially if there has been rain.

level 3 walks

Level 3 walks are up to an hour long, with slopes and maybe on rough paths.

The aim is for you to start off at Level 1 walks and progress to Level 2 and Level 3 walks in your own time as you become more confident and able.
