Nordic Walking uses special poles to enhance walking style, with an upper body technique similar to that of cross-country skiing.
Nordic Walking courses
We hold 'Learn to Nordic Walk' courses throughout the year. Our next four week course begins on Friday 2 March 2018 and the weekly sessions will take place from 10.00am to 11.00am in Rowntree Park.
The cost of the course is £25, which includes the hire of Nordic Walking poles.
At the end of the course you'll be issued with a Nordic Walking UK Freedom Card, which will enable you to attend affiliated walking groups anywhere in the UK.
