Edinburgh Walking Group

The Edinburgh and Lothian Prostate Cancer Support Group Walking Group exists to provide men who have or have had prostate cancer with the opportunity to take part in an organised walk with others in the same boat. There have been over 30 walks to date. The walks are usually of around 7 miles in length, and they begin with coffee and a bacon roll (other edible items are available!) and finish with a late lunch at our destination. The walks are at an easy pace and as well as providing an excellent opportunity to get exercise, it's a great chance to enjoy convivial chat and put the world to right!

The next walk was due to take place on Wednesday 29th April 2020 but this has now been CANCELLED due to the coronavirus crisis. If you are interested in coming along to one of our future walks, please e-mail us at  elpcsg@gmail.com
