Walk Description:

Picking up the pace - unleashing the speed of speedhyking.  

This class is fast-paced, at times raising your heart rate and will improve your personal physical endurance. Typically this class will cover 4+ miles. 

A reasonable level of personal fitness is recommended. 

If you want to step up a gear on your walks, you are a runner that wants to learn how to ascend and descend hills and master more technical terrain more effectively? Or perhaps you were a gym-goer and want to swap the mirrors for nature? 

New members always welcome - A Freedom Activation code is NOT required for this class but an induction on the use of the poles is required.

Please allow 75 minutes for this class. 

Stepping out cautiously and adhering to guidelines. 

It is essential to register and book early in advance.

If you receive the waiting list notice we have reached capacity numbers.  

We are adhering to strict Covid-19 social distancing protocol and fully endorse the TEST and Trace NHS Initiative. 

Please use your own poles. Please do not book on for a WALX if you think you may have symptoms, or do have symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has symptoms. 

This is for members with a Nordic Walking UK FREEDOM passport.  

Pre-requisite: This is only for those with appropriate training at present. 

Gear: Think light, shoes with a good grip, low weight and flexible. Same for the backpack, no more than 25ltr, low compression straps keeping it close to your body, built-in hydration pack or side pockets for easy access to water. Jacket - breathable, perhaps zipped air vents.

Join as a monthly member for unlimited classes for £34.50 or get a 20% discount on walks with a pre-paid amount.

Whilst we do understand that sometimes it is not possible to make a class, please be aware that we do operate a no refund policy if you give us less than 2 hours’ notice, please do not self-refund within this time. Any refund will be at the discretion of Samantha Armstrong.
