Nordic Walking for beginners - heading to the coast

Nordic Walking for beginners - heading to the coast

Wed 6th March 2013

A new Nordic Walking group aimed at beginners or those who have never tried Nordic Walking starts on Wednesday 13th March at Druridge Bay. The sessions have been put in place to introduce people to Nordic Walking in the lead up to the ‘Leki Nordic Walking’ festival at Kirkharle Courtyard on the 7th April 2103.

Nordic Walking originates from cross country skiers in Finland who started to use poles in their off-season training when there was no snow – they soon realized that this was giving them a massive advantage and that the technique was a perfect training aid that kept their heart and lungs in top condition and ensured upper and lower body muscles remained in top shape.

The beach at Druridge is a great location to learn the basic technique of Nordic Walking and with the stunning coastline Northumberland has to offer what better location to give Nordic Walking a go.

Jane Monks, the Nordic Walking instructor leading the sessions, said ‘In the past we have had a great response the mid-week Nordic Walking sessions we have been running in the south of Northumberland. With spring on our doorstep we are keen to head to the coast as the beach is the ideal location to learn the basics of Nordic Walking’.

All the equipment is provided at no cost and with each of the weekly sessions costing just £3.00 it has been very much priced at those wanting to try Nordic Walking for the first time.

Booking is essential, as places are limited. You can find out more here.
