Walk Description:

Our Easy Thursday morning walks are a great way to practice your technique and take a gentle approach to improving your technique. Great for those new to nordic walking or those looking for an easier walk level.

 Todays walk: A easier morning walk at from Ramsbury village along towards Littlecote House and back via the woods. This a fairly flat walk with a gentle incline on second part of the walk and then a fairly steep descent back to village.

Notes: Park along the road near the pub. Can have a coffee afterwards in Cafe Bella.

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.

You must re-visit your PARQ and answer all questions including decalrations on COVID 19. Please bring your own equipement or if you need to borrow poles you will be provided with Activator strapless poles which are much easier to clean.

If you or a household member test positive for COVID-19 or feel unwell and need to take a Covid test please don't attend the walk. You can cancel using your email confirmation.

You don't need to wear a mask but if you want to use cafe or toilets you may prefer to have one with you.
