Team NWUK travelled North to the National Trust Grasmere Gallop last month and despite freezing temperatures, we had lots of fun meeting up with Nordic walkers from across the UK
This 10 k race for Nordic walkers is an annual event that has grown year on year and is a MUST for any groups looking for a challenge combined with a great sociable weekend away in the stunning Lake District!
We were delighted to see NWUK Instructors taking most of the winning slots and enjoyed watching the looks of satisfaction and achievement on the faces of each and every competitor to cross the line.
Book next years date 4th June 2016 into your diary and encourage your group to come along. The local Instructors are promising some fabulous additional walks on the Sunday next year too – so head to the National Trust Grasmere Gallop website to book your places now – enter as Team NWUK and you will get a surprise on the day too!
If you fancy taking part in a race sooner than the how about the
CHICHESTER HALF MARATHON
We would love as many other groups as possible to join them to take part in this half Marathon event. The CHICHESTER HALF MARATHON on Sunday 11th October has positively embraced Nordic Walking and has even got designated prizes for the Nordic walking category.
