Nordic Walking

We are running regular beginners courses so get in touch and let us get you started.

Once you have completed a beginners courses you can join our regular Nordic Walking activities.

On our group walks you will be guided on a risk assessed route that has been chosen for its interest, distance, location, parking and, if possible, its facilities.

Each Nordic Walk is led by either Sara or me or both of us. We are instructor members of British Nordic Walking and the International Nordic Walking Federation. I also hold the Lowland Walk Leader qualification. We both have up to date outdoor first aid qualifications. We are fully insured to lead and take you out.

We will give on-going coaching on technique should you wish - just ask!

You will meet lovely like-minded people on our group walks, and you can enjoy the route without the worry about where you are going, in the knowledge that the route is safe and suitable.

So, switch off and enjoy your walk with us.

"A huge thank you to you and the team for a great day.

The route marking was spot on, the food and drink brill and such an great atmosphere at the end.

My homing instinct carried on even after I finished; until, in fact I was back in Stow soaking in a hot bath!

All the best,
Jakki
