Friday Cafe Nordic Walx - this is up to 2 hours and 5 miles often followed by a coffee at a local cafe or bring your own flask for an after walk coffee and chat.

Todays walk: A newish walk from Marlborough onto the old railway line towards Ogbourne and then back via Maizey and Rockley

Pace & Intensity: Fairly moderate paced walk suitable for most abilities. 

Gradient: there are some hills which can be taken slowly.

Miles: This walk is around 6.5 miles.

Notes: we are planning to start at village hall. Due to Covid we can't visit a cafe inside so we will bring snacks and hot drinks for a mid walk snack break. 

Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking – it makes something we can all do… twice as effective! Nordic Walking uses poles to in order to add two major benefits to walking.

  • The use of poles means the upper body muscles are used as well as the legs
  • The poles help to propel the walker along – this means he/she works harder than usual yet the support given by the poles makes it feel easier!

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.
