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 4-week 'Learn to Nordic Walk' courses throughout the year.
Courses will be held from 10.00am to 11.00am on the following dates in 2019:
- 15, 22, 29 March and 5 April
- 10, 17, 24 and 31 May
- 5, 12, 19 and 26 July
The group meets at the Rowntree Park Reading Café.
The cost of the course is £30 including pole hire. At the end you'll be issued with a Nordic Walking UK Freedom Card, which means you can attend affiliated walking groups anywhere in the UK.
