About this Event

Monaghan Sports Partnership is delighted to announce our new 6-week Nature Walks programme happening at Lough Muckno Park, specifically for older and more vulnerable adults, with separate walking groups every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 11am to 11:45am starting from August the 18th.

These weekly walks will be lead by an experienced walk leader who will have undergone extensive training in Covid-19 protocols prior to walks commencing. All walks will have limited numbers and will adhere to social distancing and all other Government and HSE guidelines at all times.

The weekly walks will follow different paths around Muckno Forest Park and will take in the beauties of nature and will promote the benefits of the outdoors on both physical and mental well-being.

After the walk has been completed the experienced walk leader will go through some gentle flexibility exercises with participants aimed at improving overall functionality and flexibility, there are huge benefits of improved flexibility on our daily lives regardless of age or physical fitness.

These walks are specifically for over 60's and the most vulnerable and are suitable for all abilities whether you are a complete beginner/ new to exercise or a more experienced walker.

Every possible effort will be undertaken by MSP and our walk leaders to ensure all necessary protocols and best practices are followed to mitigate against the possibility of infection, we ask that all participants on these walks also undertake such efforts to limit the possibility of infection.

We ask that participants not congregate less than the recommended 2-metre social distancing rule either before, during or directly after these walks. We also ask all participants to please disperse from the meeting point at car-park once session has been completed .

If, before any weekly session you are feeling unwell or feel like you may be developing some symptoms associated with not only the Covid-19 but attributed to other illnesses we ask you to please refrain from attending the weekly session.

As part of the questions asked in this registration form, you will be asked specific questions relating to the last 14 days. These questions are mandatory and are asked to help mitigate against any possible spread of the Covid-19. Each week we will ask has there been any change to the answers which you gave before the commencement of the programme. An answer to these questions is also compulsory.

Things to remember:

• Are you well enough to be able to walk as part of this weekly programme

• When walking practice social distancing – (while Covid19 advice is still in place)

• Keep a minimum 2-metre distance from other walkers/ park goers

• Practice coughing and sneezing etiquette, using a tissue or into the elbow if you do not have a tissue and wash hands immediately on return from walk
