The Step Forth events allow members to “meet new friends, discover new places to walk, get a bit fitter and be out in the fresh air”.

All of the free walks are run by a team of volunteer leaders.

Step Forth health walks take place on Mondays at The Helix, Falkirk – leaving from the front of The Falkirk Stadium at 10am. Heart of the Helix strolls are held every Monday at 7pm, with participants meeting at The Falkirk Stadium at 7pm.
