Our Medal Routes project is about using local knowledge to create routes for local people on local paths. If visitors and tourists use them too, then great – the more the merrier!

Get involved

Do you have the enthusiasm to encourage more people to be more active in their local communities? Would you like to take people out for a taster walk on routes you've developed?

This project aims to encourage more people to be more active outdoors in their local communities through walking independently on 'Medal Routes'. These are short circular walks of approximately 15, 30 and 60 minutes long, starting and finishing at a Walking Hub such as a library, a café or a school.

If you’d like to volunteer, you’ll be supported at all times by our Project Officer, Rob Burns. You can do one or more of our volunteering roles and we’ll agree clear responsibilities at the outset.

The aim of the plan is to get you walking briskly for at least half an hour on at least five days of the week.
