This is a 'Fast Track Learn to Nordic Walk' day event that also leads to a free Nordic Walk Passport (see below)

What is Nordic Walking?

Nordic Walking is a specific fitness technique and is not to be confused with trekking, hill walking or trail running as the poles are not planted in front of the walker/runner but in a specific way that increases the use of the upper body. It's rapidly growing in popularity as a way to keep fit, so could be a great addition to your normal hiking outings.

What the day involves:

9.30am:    Arrival

10.00am:  Morning Fast Track Nordic Walking tuition

1.00pm:    Break for lunch at The Manifold Café, Ilam. 

2pm - 4pm: A Nordic Walk in the parkland and surrounding area (approx. 4 miles) to see some of the most iconic sites around Dovedale. This will reinforce you Nordic Walking Skills whilst really relaxing and socialising in the afternoon. 

4.00pm:   Finish

Optional 4pm - 5pm+: Pub visit and food to finish off the day (for extra socialising)
