Nordic Walking is a specific fitness technique and is not to be confused with trekking, hill walking or trail running as the poles are not planted in front of the walker/runner but in a specific way that increases the use of the upper body. It can be done by anybody, anywhere and does not require expensive equipment or clothing.
Note: To participate in regular Nordic WALX, you must have completed our Nordic Freedom Course.
PARQ must be re-taken including new Covid questions.
Please use your own equipment. If you need poles please contact me about use a set of Activiator poles which are easier to clean between uses. If you want advice on buying your own poles please ask me.
Stay poles apart - i.e. 1 metre plu apart on walks and when you are standing near others at start and end of the walk.
Masks are not reqruired. You may like to carry one just in case we visit a shop or cafe after the walk.
