Walk RCT

In 2019 Lets Walk Cymru, the organisation which supported, insured and trained walking groups in Wales disbanded. We have recognised that this leaves new and existing walking groups in Rhondda Cynon Taf vulnerable. As a result we have created Walk RCT.

Walk RCT is a scheme that will support new and existing walking groups in RCT by providing support to their walk leader volunteers. As part of the scheme we will offer the walk leader/s:

  • Walk leader training
  • Insurance
  • Free DBS Check
  • Sport RCT Volunteer scheme rewards and incentives
  • Marketing support
  • Help and advice


Key requirements of the scheme

In order to receive this support we require group leaders to adhere to basic requirements including:

  1. Leaders sign up as Sport RCT volunteers and attend an annual training session
  2. Leaders are 18 years or over and hold a valid First Aid certificate
  3. Registers to be submitted to Sport RCT every 6 months
  4. Ratio of 1 leader to 20 participants for all walks
  5. Walks typically last 2 hours and take place on lowland terrain with minimal hazards
