Walk Description:

 

Todays walk: Alton Barnes - a general afternoon walk up to the White Horse and round via the Wansdyke and Knapp Hill.

Length and Grade: the walk is 5 miles and is undulating. There is a fairly steep hill to start the walk and then we walk mostly on the ridge before descending back to the start.

Notes: There are no facilites on this walk so please make sure you have enough water and snacks and are prepared for the weather on the day. Your leader will have extra sunscreen, bug spray and hats - but please make sure you have extra clothing in case of rain.

Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking – it makes something we can all do… twice as effective! Nordic Walking uses poles to in order to add two major benefits to walking.

The use of poles means the upper body muscles are used as well as the legs The poles help to propel the walker along – this means he/she works harder than usual yet the support given by the poles makes it feel easier!

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 can be done by anybody, anywhere and does not require expensive equipment or clothing.

Note: To participate in regular Nordic WALX, you must have completed our Nordic Freedom Course.

 

We are no longer operating Covid 19 guidelines but by nature of nordic walking we do naturally socially distance. If you feel unwell before the walk please do let your leader know and use the cancel button on your confirmation email to remove yourself from the walk.
