Welcome to the Leicestershire and Rutland Walking Group, aimed at walkers in their 20s & 30s and 40s+. We're part of the Ramblers, the charity that helps everyone, everywhere, enjoy walking and protects the places we all love to walk. We offer some walks exclusively aimed at the 20s & 30s age group while the majority of walks are aimed for walkers in their 20s, 30s and 40+. Check out our calendar for more details.
We're dedicated to looking after paths and green spaces, leading walks, opening up new places to explore and encouraging everyone to get outside and discover how walking boosts your health and your happiness.
Walking with the Leicestershire and Rutland Walking Group is a great way to get exercise, socialising while you go! The group is an active and friendly walking club. It caters for a wide range of abilities and fitness levels and welcomes new members. Before asking you to join, we invite you to try two or three of our walks and attend a couple of pub meets. Please contact us for full details of upcoming events in our packed programme.

You're welcome to join us on a couple of walks before formally joining our group. Think of it as "try before you buy"! Please contact our before you come along so we know to expect you and if there has been any last minute changes, we can let you know. Also, please feel free to ask for a lift to a walk. We will put word out to the group and if anyone in your area is planning to walk that day, they may be able to offer you a lift.
Also, you can opt to join our emailing list for a limited time. You will receive emails with our monthly newsletter and details of any changes to the programme, but won't be able to send emails to the group yourself. When you join our group, you will have the option to join our full emailing list where you can email members with lift requests and your own impromptu events. Please note, participation in the emailing list is optional. You must agree to receive emails. You will not be added automatically. You can unsubscribe at any time.
What to bring on your first walk:
On walks you can expect over 20 people or far less depending on location, difficulty and the all important weather conditions! Please feel free to browse our various social media sites to see what we've been getting up to recently.
For more information, please see our members section. We look forward to welcoming you along soon!
