Group name: Rutland

This group is a part of Leicestershire & Rutland Area.

Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.

The Rutland Group organises a fortnightly programme of Sunday walks throughout the year. The distance walked is generally 8-10 miles. Shorter walks, 4-6 miles, are held on Boxing Day and New Year's Day. A weekend away is arranged most years. All walks require waterproof clothing, walking boots and, except short walks, a packed lunch. The group usually meets in Oakham, sometimes in Uppingham, but leaders will provide map references for any walkers wanting to join at the start of the walks.
