Walking Facts and Benefits
On average, every minute of walking can extend your life by 1.5 to 2 minutes.
Walking an extra 20 minutes each day will burn off 7 pounds of body fat per year.
Longer, moderately-paced daily walks (40 minutes at 60% to 65% maximum
heart rate) are best for losing weight.
Shorter, faster walks (20-25 minutes at 75% to 85% maximum heart rate) are
best for conditioning your heart and lungs.
Walking is much preferable to running or jogging because it creates less stress on
your joints, including hips, knees, and ankles. Remember to properly warm up before
and cool down after every walking session...your muscles will love you for it!
Keep up with Ramblers' Campaigns
It's also really important that we remember that the Ramblers
is NOT just about going on lovely walks (great as that is!); the Ramblers is also a campaigning organisation on
a range of issues.
Don't Lose Your Way
Make sure your favourite historic path is on the definitive map by 2026 – or you might lose it.
1 January 2026 is the cut-off date for adding historic paths to what is known as the definitive map:
the official record of the public’s rights of way in an area. When a path is on this map, it not only means
we have a right to walk on it, but it is much easier to protect and maintain. However, any path which came
into existence before 1949 and that has not been requested to be on the map by 2026 will be lost - forever!
We’ve been working with the government to make sure that the process for registering paths on the definitive
map is as easy as it can be so that as many paths as possible can be recorded before
it is too late.
