Just so you know (as I’ve had a few questions about it); “Paws” are the rubber feet that go on the bottom of the poles; and does not mean to bring your dog along as some of you thought!

NEW NORDIC WALKERS

I’d like to welcome all my new Nordic Walkers, they are: Jenny K, Ann A, Margarite, Sue F, Kath C, Derek, Karen H, Graeme, Jean W, Rachel, Jenny C, Mel T, Caroline J, Sallie, George, Mariella, Diane B, Sheila R, Maggie, Sian, Sam G, Chris B, Nigel, Denise B, Helen A, Gill, Christine M, Pam H, Linda, Rose, Gwen, Brenda and Mark.

CLASS COSTS

All Nordic Walkers who have completed the technique course are welcome to my open classes. A list of these walks will be emailed to you each Sunday. Costs are £5 per class or £4 if you have your own poles.

Longer distance walks are: £6 for walks 4-7 miles, £8 for 8 miles to 11 miles, £12 for walks 12 to 20 miles. Extreme Nordic is £6 per session. Gentle class (4) is £25 per hour up to 5 people then £5 each additional person. There is a minimum of 3 attendees for all classes.

We do several longer distance walks throughout the year as well as a few charity events also so always check your emails.

HEALTH & SAFETY

I will email an hour prior to a walk if it is cancelled due to inclement weather. We don’t walk on ice or in heavy rain as the slip hazard becomes a lot more risky when there is surface water. We’ll walk in everything else so make sure you have good walking shoes/boots.

NEW CLASS

I will be starting a new class on Saturdays at 11am in Ampthill Park after my current Beginners course finishes. This class will be for my faster moderate Nordic Walkers. If you have any questions regarding these or any of the walks I run, please let me know.

CONGRATULATIONS!

Congratulations to Martin and Tanya who have completed their Nordic Walking Instructor courses this week! Well done.

See you all out on the trails!

Many thanks,

Elaine

If you get a chance, try and watch the cross country skiing that’s going on at the Olympics right now.

It’s awesome to see and will inspire to get out and about with your poles!

Many thanks,

Any questions, please call, text or email me.  Please note the Gentle, Extreme and the Fast and Furious are “booking” classes so please let me know if you want to attend these classes.

If the weather is bad I will notify you by email an hour prior to the walks if they’re cancelled, so please check before you set out if in any doubt.

Thanks again for coming along to my walks and making them so enjoyable.  See you all out on the trails!
