Nordic walking improves your health and well-being by allowing you to move more naturally whilst combining aerobic movement with muscle-strengthening exercises, all whilst being outside in nature.
The free Nordic Walking Course consists of four 1.5 hour sessions and will run over two days a week apart. Participants are expected to complete and return a pre-course readiness questionnaire and to attend all four sessions in order to learn foundation-level Nordic walking techniques safely & effectively.
Session 1 – 9.30 to 11am
Session 2 – 11.45am to 1.15pm
Session 3 – 9.30 to 11am
Session 4 – 11.45am to 1.15pm

Are you able to walk comfortably for half an hour at a brisk pace, i.e. to the extent that you are breathing harder, feeling warmer, perhaps starting to sweat, but still able to talk with the person at your side ?
Our policy is to postpone sessions if over 30mph wind with/without rain is forecast or ice/snow is covering our tracks. Another session will then be offered to try and ensure people don’t miss out.
Specialist Nordic walking poles are provided on the course. If you decide to take up Nordic walking having successfully completed a course, you will be supplied with a pair of poles free of charge.
Nordic walking is learned by participating in a course led by an accredited instructor.
