Book or Join a Walk

There are a variety of ways to engage with Nordic Walking, and I offer options for all levels of experience and ability.

Beginners

If you are new to Nordic Walking, you will need to learn the technique before you can join regular walks.

COVID-19 SAFETY

We have implemented a number of actions to ensure that walks can continue in a safe manner during the current situation.

In addition to the measures below, as of January 2021 all walks will take place on a one-to-one basis only for the time being. You can still check availability and book your place below.

  • We socially distance when walking and contact details are kept for Track and Trace.
  • You must bring your own poles if you can. If you hire poles the hand straps will have been sanitised.
  • If you have had symptoms or been in contact with anyone who has tested positive, please do not attend the walks.

Other Walk Options

In addition to Nordic Walking, I am also able to offer a variety of other guided walk, course and training options.

Walks With Winnie

Walks With Winnie are alternative group guided walks without poles, and dogs are welcome.

What to Bring and How to Find the Start

What to wear

  • Lightweight clothing, suitable for the weather – breathable if possible, in layers in case you get too warm.
  • Walking boots are a good idea, as we may be on rough terrain – waterproof ones would be ideal!
  • Waterproof trousers and jacket, just in case – breathable is best.
  • A hat and gloves may be an idea. Gloves will need to be thin in order to fit into the hand straps on the poles.
  • Jeans are not recommended – they restrict movement, get heavy and cold when wet and are too hot in the summer.

What to bring

  • A small rucksack for all the clothes you may need to take off as you warm up.
  • A drink and a few snacks just in case .
  • Any medication you may need.
