Nordic Walks week commencing 10th October, 2016
Hi Nordic Walkers,
Sorry for the late email this week but as you can see from the Picture this week, a team of us did the 13 Bridges of London 10 mile walk today! We had a blast and it was a wonderful way to see this great city. I will send more pics of this great walk out shortly. I want to thank all of you who took part and another BIG thank you to all of you who sponsored us for this walk in aid of Diabetes research. Well done everyone!
We’ll be having a nice n’easy walk tomorrow for Cranfield as some of us who did this walk will be a tad sore! Hoping our Mod Plus walkers will be back from Hols and injuries this week as I’ve missed our walks these past few weeks.
NEW GENTLE CLASS
We will be beginning a Brand New Gentle class this week on Tuesday morning at 9:15am in Ampthill Park West Car Park and will last 45mins.. This will be a booking class so please let me know if you wish to attend. This will be great for all Gentle Walkers who want to get in another walk each week.
THURSDAY WALK THIS WEEK
This week’s walk on Thursday morning will be from Barton Le Clay and will be entirely flat. We will be walking to Hexton where we will partake in a lovely cuppa before returning to Barton. This walk will start at 10am and is about 3.5 miles total. With the tea break we should get back 11:45am. This walk takes in sweeping views and is a real treat. We meet on Old Road MK45 4LB
LONG WALK SATURDAY 11AM – 7.5 MILES – AMPTHILL – £6
This week we have our regular Nordic Classes and then this longer walk at11am. This walk will take us from Ampthill Park over to Millbrook clinging to the golf course. We then head towards Centre Parcs where we will do the perimeter walk before returning back to Ampthill. This walk is for Moderate paced walkers and is a booking class. Should be a nice challenge for the weekend! Yay!
