Benefits of…walking
Laura Campbell profile pic

Walmer & Deal Seafront parkrun takes place every Saturday at 9am. These free 5km timed events welcome all abilities. Bring the whole family including the dog and enjoy a walk, jog or run around the park. If you don't fancy running, then you can always volunteer and help cheer everyone on!

Benefits of…walking

The benefits of walking are almost endless, and whether you used to walk regularly, have no experience of walking for exercise, or even if you're living with mobility issues, walking can provide real benefits for your health and welbeing.
