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, and 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, and other factors.

Time 9:30-11:00

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 

 

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.

Changes due to Covid-19

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 (Platers, 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
