Campus walks

Walking is one of the simplest and cheapest ways to keep fit. There is no need for special equipment, just a supportive pair of shoes and you can start walking slowly and build up gradually.

Walking can:

Build walking into your daily life

The current recommendation for physical activity is just 30 minutes a day of moderate activity, such as brisk walking, on most days of the week. That's all it takes to feel the difference.

'Brisk' walking means walking so that you breathe a little faster, feel warmer and have a slightly faster heart beat, but you should still be able to make conversation.

Listen to your body when you walk, and if you feel dizzy or develop pain or nausea, slow down or stop. If the problem persists, see your doctor before walking again.

Centenary celebration walks

As part of the Centenary celebrations, campus walking route maps have been created. They include interesting facts about the campus and sites to look out for on your way.

The routes are 30-40 minutes long, which is ideal for a lunchtime, or you can join them together if you want a longer walk.

Olympic Torch Walk

This walk covers the route of the Olympic Torch Walk relay which visited the Loughborough University campus on 3rd July 2012, day 46  of the relay. The walk covers the whole length of campus and the leaflet  describes why each of the torchbearers who ran a leg on campus were nominated.
