Walk Description:

A gentle WALX that is aimed at those who have suffered from COVID-19 and want to get back out walking in a safe, friendly and supervised environment, that incorporates balance work, flexibility and strength exercises and maybe a bit of tai chi or relaxation too.

A gentle safe way to walk yourself fitter. Join our Wellbeing WALX Guides on a sociable, fun and enjoyable walk. We use strapless urban and activator Nordic Poles, or you can walk without if you prefer. If you have your own poles then bring them along with you.

Whether you have experienced COVID-19, long COVID, feeling anxious about getting out and about after shielding or just following the restrictive rules that have been in place for the last 12 months our WALX guides will welcome you on to Cannock Chase. Our wellbeing guides are qualified to deliver WALX for all levels so it’s never too late to take that first step.

Suitable for those who want to build up to longer or more vigorous walks or may have concerns about their health. We like to give some different challenges, which are all appropriate for your levels of fitness and physical ability.

If you are feeling lonely and want to make more friends, feel stiff and lack energy, struggle to get out of your chair; then this class is exactly for you. It will get you moving whilst having fun and all sessions are adapted to ensure everyone feels part of the group.

The routes will primarily be around the Marquis Drive Visitor Centre enabling us to utilise the open area whilst staying close to your vehicles, you will never be far away from your car. As you become stronger we can then offer longer WALX.

We offer a chance to catch-up and chat with friends or if you prefer to enjoy being outdoors but want some time to yourself let us worry about the route and you can enjoy your surroundings safely.

Remember: Monthly membership gives you unlimited WALX for only £24.99 per month

It is essential to register and book in advance online.

COVID-19 Safety measures.

Our online health questionnaire (PARQ) asks you to update your current health status. If you feel unwell between booking your class and joining us, we ask that you err on the side of caution and cancel your booking. You will be directed to book another date or a refund can be issued. Please remain at least 2m away from all other participants. 

Our Covid-19 social distancing protocol is:

Keep 2 metres apart. Stay within your social bubble. Only use your own poles and equipment.  Carry a face mask and hand sanitiser (use regularly especially if you handle gates, etc). Wear a face mask if you feel more comfortable doing so. Please do not book on a WALX if you think you may have symptoms, have symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has symptoms. Ensure you book in advance so that our contact and trace records are accurate.

You are asked to contact your Instructor by phone, leaving a voicemail or sending an SMS to the number below, if you are likely to be delayed as we do start WALX promptly.

Whilst we do understand that sometimes it is not possible to make a WALX, please make every effort to advise the WALX Guide. 

We undertake to deliver all WALX with qualified staff and have made every effort to risk assess all routes. On occasions, it is necessary to make dynamic risk assessment decisions when there is a localised incident such as fallen trees on the route, flooding, traffic changes, etc.

Please ensure you have completed the online health questionnaire (PARQ) and notify us in writing if you have any change to your medical records or physical or mental wellbeing. This should include any surgery, falls, knocks or accidents. Thank you.
