Join our Ramblers community of walkers roaming close to home #RoamSweetHome

Whilst we can’t all walk in the way we would like to during the covid-19 lockdown, wherever you are, whatever you do, we are in this together.

Whatever activity you do to keep up your walking fitness, stick to the Government guidelines and protect us all. Read our guidance.

We can still roam for leisure, health and happiness at home, in our outdoor spaces and within our one daily exercise. 

Staying active is more important than ever, for both our mental and physical health, and getting moving feels great!

We challenge you to put one step in front of the other

Our Ramblers community is brilliant at being active. We might have hung up our walking boots for now, but our rambling spirit and sense of fun is going strong.

That joy of walking can be felt anywhere - from a hike up the stairs, a jog on the balcony, a stroll in the garden, to a wander in a nearby park.  

So, we challenge you to join us in getting all our step count up in the weeks and months ahead. We can each discover new energy and excitement, as we roam close to home.

If you’re north of the border, one great way to keep active is by downloading your local Medal Routes – free maps for short circular walking routes right across Scotland.

We’re cheering you on every step of the way

Where and how are you roaming to get those steps up? Share your photos and stories with us.

On day 11 of self-isolation as a family with two children under four, Jade, senior fundraiser at the Ramblers talks about her experience of staying active in the home with kids.

My favourite walk this week has been along the River Dart on the beautiful Sharpham estate, Totnes. Every time I go there are even more Devon violets and primroses, beautiful.

Adventure on the top, nap time on the bottom? 🤷‍♀️ Setting out on a world first socks-only Everest summit attempt today (aka Mum won’t let me wear shoes on her new carpet) via @playinthewilduk’s April Everest challenge. Works out about 144 reps of our stairs per day... 🥴. #roamsweethome @ramblersgb
