Sport Relief is back from 17th to 23rd March for a week of epic activity, with the nation coming together to take part in one colossal Sport Relief Challenge- 1 Billion Steps.

We are doing our bit today walking along the Thames from Reading to Sonning Bridge. Each person is challenged to achieve 15,000 steps today! Dress head to toe in Red! PJs, tutus, all welcome. .  Grab your official merchandise! From T-shirts to Wristbands, check out the range online, or in Sainsbury's from 15th February.
Be part of one epic, national challenge to beat one billion steps a day, every day, from Saturday 17th to Friday 23rd March, with the Sport Relief app. To make your steps count, just follow these three easy steps here.

This session is aimed at gear at a brisk gear 2 with occasional breathers - although this is a brisk pace we ask that you keep the community spirit. For those wishing to stride out we operate the "the whistle and loop back" fun strategy. It helps maintain our sense of community but addresses the different needs. 

Please do not book on to the session if you are not able to maintain this pace or speak to Janine for guidance.

It is advisable to wear a bum bag with a water bottle or hydration pack. Do bring a high energy snack to have on the hoof or as soon as we finish.

We respect people`s busy agendas and do like to start promptly. Please arrive 15 minutes early for your class and be ready to start on time. Please do not be offended if we do not wait whilst you get yourself sorted. We do a warm up close by so please do catch up.

Walk speed guide:

Gentle stroll - Gear 1 - Nice pace that you can do for extended periods. 2-2.5mph (these generally are our Well Being walks)
Easy walk -Gear 2 - Faster pace gained through technique. Expect Gear 2 at times throughout the walk with occasional photo stops. 2.5mph (Most of our 1 hour adventure walks)
Moderate walk - Gear 2/3 - Faster again using technique and with less recovery. Very little stopping. 2.5mph-3mph+ (these are generally our Step up and Stride out Workout walks and longer Adventure walks)
Strenuous walk - gear 3/4 and Power Stride workout walks and Challenge training.

Booking online in advance is essential. This is to keep you safe and minimise the risks for these exciting walks.

You are asked to contact Janine by phone, leaving a voicemail or sending an sms text to 07792 550191, if you are likely to be delayed as we do start classes promptly.

Whilst we do understand that sometimes it is not possible to make a class, please be aware that we do operate a no refund policy if you give us less than 24 hours’ notice.

This session is for Freedom Passport Holders only. You receive this after successfully completing our Learn To Nordic Walk course. Please email or phone 07792 550191 for details.
