Nordic Walking week commencing 11th September, 2017
BRITISH NORDIC WALKING 10K CHAMPION
Our own Paula W has done it again and retained her British Nordic Walking 10k Champion crown! Paula had to win the race today in Swindon in order to secure her title after winning ALL three of the challenges so far. Congratulations Paula! There is one more 10k challenge in the series and this is on October 15th, in Black Park, Buckinghamshire. If you’d like to come along and do the last of the 10k challenges this year, click here to book: https://britishnordicwalking.org.uk/pages/events You don’t have to race, you can just come along for the fun experience and get your medal at the end (and the bacon butties are really worth the effort, I can tell you!)
Could all the walkers who have signed up to do the Memory Walk on the 24th September, let me know. Thanks.
I’d like to welcome Caroline H, Rani, Hazel and Carol L who have all just completed their Technique courses. We look forward to seeing you all soon on the trails.
