Community Walking Groups

 There is an extensive list of community based walking groups in Cork city, Cork suburbs and Cork county that are supported by the Cork Sports Partnership and the HSE South, Health Promotion and Improvement Department.  These groups are led by community voluntary leaders and meet on a weekly basis. They are open to people of all fitness levels especially beginners. Walking routes may vary each week but are usually local and on flat terrain. These groups promote walking as a safe, fun and enjoyable activity to get fit and healthy and there is also a great social element to the groups.

 

Below you will find a list of groups with meeting times, venues and days. It is advisable to contact the relevant walking leader before you join the group as details may vary from time to time.

CORK CITY AND COUNTY COMMUNITY WALKING GROUPS
