New Walking and Running Trail

Ruskin Park has a new walking and running trail, funded by the Lambeth Community Fund. This builds on the vision to be a ‘Health and Wellbeing Park’ by encouraging people be more active and set distance goals and monitor progress. Starting at the Denmark Hill entrance, the 2km circuit uses oak posts at regular intervals to mark out a route around the park.

Keen to get involved? There’s already an established walking group run by Walking for Health Southwark who meet at the Denmark Hill entrance of the park every Thursday at 11am. Walking for Health are also currently looking for volunteers to help lead the group, with a training session planned for 20th March.

Or if you are curious about how you can improve your health through running, why not give the NHS-endorsed Couch to 5k programme a go?
