Get Active and Social - Join our Walking Groups

Finding friends to walk with can be a challenge. Maybe your diaries clash, you walk at different speeds or you prefer different terrains.

Covid Safe

Our small groups meet in open spaces so we’re Covid secure!

Friendly Members

Walking regularly with others is a great way to make good friends.

Improve health and fitness

Exercising outdoors is a great way to get your fitness back and improve health. 

Why walk in a group?

Walking is a great form of exercise but walking alone doesn't always hold the same appeal. 

If you want to get out and explore while widening your social circle, you can achieve both goals as a member.

Cheltenham Walking Group

When and Where

Weekday Walks 

Our lunchtime and evening walks take you around the most scenic trails of Cheltenham but in shorter time and keeping closer to home. 

These convenient walks are perfect for a blast of exercise between the other activities in your busy life. 

Locations include:

  • Cleeve Golf Course
  • The Rising Sun Hotel
  • The 3 Pylons on Cleeve Common
  • The Royal Oak in Prestbury
  • The Cheltenham Race Course
  • Aggs Hill
  • Woodmancote
  • Leckhampton Hill

Saturday walks all over Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds

We have longer walks on Saturdays. These are generally 2-3 hours and stop off or finishing at a pub for lunch. 

Sunday Morning Local Walks 

Start your Sunday with a walk with friends, followed by a coffee in the new Heritage Deco Cafe next to the Pump Room.

Most walks are 60-90 minutes

Join the CRWC Family

Cheltenham Walking Club challenges the stereotypes around walking clubs.

Our members are of different ages, backgrounds, abilities and experiences. Many have busy lives and challenging careers. What they share is a desire to get outdoors and walk in friendly groups.

We don’t just walk! We have regular social events so you can meet up with fellow walkers and our wider community of beginner and experienced runners.

Walking with others and seeing new places

I joined the walking group in May and have enjoyed a number of walks, both weekday and Saturday. I enjoy the opportunity to exercise with others, meet new people and see new places. I find everyone to be very friendly, encouraging and a great community to be part of.

Following a move to Cheltenham 18 months ago, I wanted to make new friendships, get fitter and explore the local area.

The walking club ticks all these boxes, everyone is so friendly, I’m feeling fitter and I’ve found some new and interesting places to walk and talk!

So glad I joined. Jean


One of the best decisions I've made after struggling with anxiety and depression

Joining the group was one of the best decisions I've made after struggling with anxiety and depression over the last couple years.

I've been so lucky through the walking group to meet people who I now regard as some of my closest friends who I couldn't be without. It's great to get out and meet new people. It's one thing I really look forward to every week after work!

I'm no longer ashamed or embarrassed about my red face after exercise which was a major stumbling block for me when exercising with others!

Great friendly club with a really proactive leadership, I would definitely recommend them to anyone either starting a fitness regime or wanting to continue at a higher level


The People Are Lovely

The people I have met are really lovely. Everyone is so friendly and it doesn’t matter how fast or slow you are, there is something for all abilities. The group is well run and a wonderful way to incorporate exercise and being sociable.
