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 £30.00 including pole hire. You'll be issued with a Nordic Walking UK Freedom Card at the end of the course, which means you can attend affiliated walking groups anywhere in the UK.

Visit Exercise Anywhere for further information or to book a place.

Details of the sessions:

  • Fridays 10.00am to 11.00am
