We will walk beforehand and then assemble at The Hub for some YUMMY FOOD and good company.

Our socials are for all our Nordic Walkers and family/friends. There will be a £1 charge for walkers to help with costs (family and friends come for free).

We will have sandwiches, nibbles, of course cake, and fruit. I will make sure we have some gluten free/dairy free stuff too!

Why Nordic Walking?

Nordic Walking was originally developed in Finland.

It was designed to help cross-country skiers practice in the summer.

Now it's a total-body  version of walking that non-atheletes can enjoy and physically benefit from.

However, in order to get the most from nordic walking, you need to be taught the proper technique.

  • Nordic Walking uses 90% of the skeletal muscles
  • Burns up to 46% more calories than normal walking
  • Poles propel you along, making it easier to move faster without feeling the strain
  • Tones the upper and lower body simultaneously
  • And...IT'S GREAT FUN!
