Nordic Walking week commencing 26th March, 2018
What a great week of walks we had. The weather was superb as hints of spring begin to break through. It never fails to astound me how hardy flowers are; even after really cold snaps and heavy snow, they still pop there heads out and wave at us as we pass by year after year. Such a lovely time of year to be outdoors. Great speeds again this week! Especially the Thursday walkers at the Danish Camp. Good job!
This week it will be getting colder so remember to layer up and be prepared.
The next Technique Workshop will be on Saturday April 7th at 12pm meeting in the West Car Park. The cost is £5 and includes video analysis. You will learn to tweak your technique with the very latest changes from the International Nordic Walking Federation. 40 minute session.
BEGINNERS COURSE – Saturday, March 31st – 11am
