Walking Group in Bantry
Bantry Walking Group
The Cork ARC Cancer Support House Bantry Walking Group is available to anyone who has been affected by cancer. It caters for all abilities and walking paces. The group is led by trained walking leaders and our routes take in the beautiful locations around West Cork. New Walkers are always welcome.
There are many benefits of joining a walking group. Walking itself is a perfect form of exercise for every fitness level, and also allows for social interactions while you are exercising. Physically walking can improve heart health, joint mobility, bone and muscle strength. It can also help to maintain a healthy weight and improve fitness
Walking is great for your mental health, helping to reduce stress and negative thoughts along with improving your self esteem. It will help you to clear your mind and focus on the ‘here and now’.
The Walking Group is also a fantastic social event, where you can enjoy the beautiful vistas of West Cork in the company of others who have also been affected by cancer and share your experiences.
