Why Walk & Talk?

Marauders Walk and Talk are designed to provide an opportunity to meet new friends, helping to improve men’s wellbeing. For some men,  it is simply a walk with like-minded men to improve their fitness, whilst for others it is a means to reduce loneliness and to improve their mental ill health  out on walks in Natures wonderful places.
We are surrounded by natural beauty on Coast and Countryside in South Wales. Nature has a fantastic means of encouraging men to open up to each other out on walks and creating Positive Energy. Walking with other men creates priceless banter bring fun to the walks which in turn helps improve your whole wellbeing.
