We usually use "go and [verb]" when "go [verb]" can also be used, informally. We generally say "go walking/run" rather than "go walk/run." But both are OK.

Hi David,

What do you mean when you said "go and walk" sounds rather unlikely to me."?

And do you mean it's also correct to say "go run"and "go walk"? Can we say 'go fish' and 'go swim' etc. when talking about outdoor activities?

Thank you very much for your answer.
