Register your walking group today!

55 walking groups have now registered with the Get Ireland Walking Initiative. Please help us to get every community, village, town and city in Ireland walking by registering your local walking group with Get Ireland Walking. 
Registering your walking group will create opportunities for more people to get walking for health, for fun and for life throughout Ireland. You can register your walking group by simply logging on to: 

Get Ireland Walking is encouraging all walking groupings to register, it doesn’t matter how informal or small the group is, once you are walking on a regular basis and have walks that are accessible to beginners we would encourage you to join the Get Ireland Walking network and help us build a vibrant culture of walking in Ireland.
Registration will give your group:
• access to free insurance cover for your volunteer walk leaders and group coordinators; 
• a listing on the only national database of walking groups, which will publicise your group and network you with other walking groups in your area and beyond.  Please note in the case of closed walking groups that it is possible to register the group and ask that the details not be displayed on the Get Ireland Walking website; 
• access for you and your group to a central source of information on all walking initiatives and supports in Ireland through the website and telephone support;
• provide a space for you and your group to share experiences and be part of a national voice for walking in Ireland. 

Feedback from the Walking groups that have already registered is that they are delighted to be able to avail of the Get Ireland Walking insurance cover for volunteer walk leaders and group co-ordinators.  We have also received very positive feedback from groups regarding the resources for group walks that are available to download from
With your involvement and support we can Get Ireland Walking.
