Jayne Raby

Brand Ambassador

Those that know me know I have a long lasting passion for the health and mental wellbing effects of fitness in the outdoors .

I enjoy bringing people together from all backgrounds , ages and abilities to share my love, knowledge and enthusiasm of the beautiful forest trails, canal paths and urban walks in our area, whilst making new friends and finding a new zest for life.

As an in-charge cabin crew member for so many years, I loved nothing more than to lace up my trainers and discover new places and new adventures on my nighhtstops around the world.

Like many, I was forced to re-evaluate my work life when Covid-19 desended on the world.

That was when I realised Nordic walking would be my ideal new venture.

My fitness background started with the humble parkrun, from there I became part of a cross-country team and discovered I had a love for off-road running and hills.

I raced competitively for a number of years in Obstacle course racing, where I twice represented the UK in my age group at the OCRWC (obstacle course racing world championships) in the USA. During that time I met many inspirational people who never let a disability hold them back. The mentality of 'no obstacle is insurmountable' has stuck with me giving me a very positive outlook on life.

In the last few years I have helped to coach at a local running group where we encourage complete beginners of any age, and show them that fitness can become a life choice that is enjoyed more in the outdoors and in the company of others.

Having fun is essential.

Nordic walking appealed to me for its inclusiveness , with fitness walks for those wishing for a fast paced , fast pulse session, Adventure walks for those after an own-paced guided sociable walk discovering new places (usually with a cafe/pub at the end , to wellness walks for those very new to exercise or coming back from illness/injury who would benefit from the safety and support of a group.

Come along with a friend or alone and give it a try.
