Welcome!
 
 
 

Welcome to the Leicestershire and Rutland Walking Group, aimed at younger walkers from their 20s to 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'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.

 
 
Walks
Summer evening walks
 
From the beginning of May to the end of September we walk on Wednesday and Tuesday evenings. The walks are generally 3 to 5 miles long and easy with a pub at the end - perfect for beginners! Walks are in local areas and start at 7:00pm. Check our calendar for the schedule.
Walks
Year round Sunday walks
 
Most walks feature a leisurely lunch stop (bring a packed lunch) and a visit to a country pub. We walk in Leicestershire, Rutland, neighbouring counties and the Peak District. Walks can be anything from 8 miles upwards, rarely more than 12 miles. Some can be very easy and some quite strenuous. Check our calendar for more details.
Weekends away
Weekends Away
 
Weekends away generally involve a long walk on the Saturday and depending on location another long walk on the Sunday. It's a good opportunity to eat, drink, be merry and get to know your fellow walkers better. Accommodation can be in a hostel, B&B or camping. Please note that weekends away are for members only. Join LRWG now!

Your first walk with LRWG
 
 

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, our can add you to 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 yourself. When you join our group, you will gain access to the full emailing list where you can email members with lift requests and your own impromptu events.
