Free Nordic Walking taster sessions

Free Nordic Walking taster sessions

Tue 19th July 2011

Nordic Walking has really increased in popularity of recent years as many people have enjoyed trying and learning the technique.

On Sunday 4th September 2011 Shepherds Walks, who are based at Kirkharle Courtyard, are offering free taster sessions so people can see what all the fuss is about.

Jon Monks, from Shepherds Walks, said ‘We have taught nearly 500 adults and children to Nordic Walk over the past 12 months and once people have tried it they are quite excited about their recently acquired skill. We have been delivering lots of different courses and walks for those being introduced to Nordic Walking for the first time to those who want to improve their skills’.

One of the true success stories has been the involvement that Shepherds Walks have had working with schools in Northumberland delivering 6 week Nordic Walk courses during school time and afterschool clubs and the great feedback they have received from children, parents and teachers.

Shepherds Walks have been delivering Nordic Walking taster sessions all over the country, including the highly acclaimed Keswick Mountain Festival earlier this year. Jon said ‘It is great to offer these free taster sessions on our door step to the local people of Hexham, Tynedale and the surrounding Countryside’.

To book onto one of the free 1 hour taster sessions please just ring 01830 540453 or visit and don’t worry they will even loan you the poles at
no cost. Booking is essential.
