More about walking
Walking is a great way to get out in the open and enjoy what the countryside has to offer, it’s also considered much safer than many contact sports. However is does carry it’s element of risks, largely dependent on the location of the walk itself. Common injuries can include trips and falls as well as twists and sprains, often as a result of walking on uneven terrain. Dehydration can also be an issue in hot conditions if appropriate fluid levels are not maintained.
Relatively speaking walking is a low risk sport. However, we still recommend that suitable walking insurance is purchased for protection against potential injury.
