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 several four-week Learn to Nordic Walk courses throughout the year. The cost of the course is £25, which includes the hire of Nordic Walking poles. At the end of the course you will be issued with a Nordic Walking UK Freedom Card, which will enable you to attend affiliated walking groups anywhere in the UK.
