Walk, Talk and Run

Walk, Talk and Run

Walk and Talk, Reach out and Run, Break the Stigma. A friendly and social support group which aims to improve physical and mental wellbeing through running or walking

Walk, Talk and Run! Looking for a way to improve your fitness and join a supportive group to make new friends?

Come and join in with our Walk, Talk and Run sessions delivered across Carmarthenshire for adults aged 18+.

These groups are suitable for all abilities, with the options of walking, Couch to 5k and running all at your own pace. To end the sessions we will encourage everyone to join us for a cuppa and a catch up.

During the sessions there are opportunities to speak to a trained mental health team member and talk to other supportive members within the group.

Actif Communites have worked in partnership with Carmarthenshire County Council's Housing department and Mental Health Department.
