Walk Description:

The Sunday long walks are a fantastic way to enjoy a great morning and to make the most of our wonderful area.

These walks are open to everyone who wants to walk with or without poles. It is walked at a moderate pace with stops for a drink and quick snack (bring your own).

If you are planning to take part in a challenge walk such as the Purbeck Festival 16 Mile Challenge on the 15th September 24 or the Beachy Head Marathon (half or full) in October, this is a great way to train. 

The Burham walk incorporates the fantastic views of the South Downs. We stick to the main paths but always wear good shoes. 

PACE Explained:

PACE 1  Approximately 3 to 3.5 miles per hour. A comfortable pace for anyone who wants to walk and talk. There is time to stop and take photos etc.  

PACE 2 Approximately 3.5 to 4.5 miles per hour. This is a steady pace which might make your breathing a little heavier, especially on the hills. 

PACE 3 Approximately 4.5 to 5 miles per hour. This is for the more experienced walker who knows they can push the pace. There will be times where they will be breathless but there is also recovery (usually on the flat or downhill).  

Please be assured that we have a NO DROP POLICY (no none gets left behind) and the walk leaders will always ensure we use different methods to cater for different needs within the group. 


You can do an unlimited number of walks and exercise sessions, including online classes for as little as £25 per month. This is works out at  £3.12 per session if you average attending twice a week.  


If you would like to take advantage of the full membership package without the commitment of direct debit, you can sign up for the 6 week programme. You will get a 1-2-1 consultation, unlimited sessions (outdoor workouts and virtual), retail discounts and a free walk with all listed WALX clubs in the country once a month. All this for £29.00
