Walk Description:

Rose Hill Marple Nordic Walks

Come along and join us on a friendly Nordic Walk starting at The Railway Pub near Rose Hill Station Marple, there are different circular routes around the area, using a mixture of streets, canals, parks, woodland, riverside paths, bridlepaths

The walk includes a short mobilisation of joints prior to walking and a cool down stretch at the end. 

The walks are advertised at 90mins but they may take a little longer than that, due to terrain, social distancing measures.

Time 10:00-11:30

Gears 1 and maybe 2 with some hills.

Distance approx 5km (3miles)

 

Tips to help get the most out of your walk:

1  Suitable clothing and footwear - layers are best

2  A small rucksac 

3  Light refreshments (water, fruit juice, etc)

4 Mobile phone is useful for any last minute changes

5 Walk Leaders mobile number

6 Please contact me if you need to hire poles, £1 payable on the day of the walk 

Changes due to Covid-19

Dogs - If you bring a dog it must be on a lead and under control at all times, I use a harness with mine and would be happy to offer advice on buying one, you must also be able to help your dog over stiles etc. where needed.

Symptoms – If you have any symptoms, please cancel your walk well in advance. By attending a walk, you confirm you and anyone in your household are symptom free, or have been tested negative. I will be checking my temperature on the morning of walks so may need to cancel at short notice should I develop symptoms. Unfortunately, if you have been sent a letter telling you to self-isolate we won’t be able to walk with you at the moment. There are Online options to help keep your fitness on track.

First Aid - You will need to bring your own basic First Aid Kit (Plasters, Bite and Sting Cream, Suncream etc recommended)

Sanitiser - I’d recommend Hand Sanitiser over gloves but the choice is yours. (There will be some available to purchase on the day, (£2.50 with a handy clip, and greater than 70% Alcohol)

Face Coverings - again the choice is yours, but they may be handy if we unexpectedly find it impossible to Socially Distance. A scarf or neck gaiter forms part of the governments recommended methods)

Stiles & Gates – Although I will try and keep routes to a minimum of stiles and gates, you need to be able to climb stiles unaided.

Equipment – Please bring your own poles where possible. Hired poles will be wiped down with alcohol gel, and all straps will be machine washed after every use. The walk includes a short mobilisation of joints prior to walking and a cool down stretch at the end.

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 24 hours’ notice. To see the full policy click HERE
