Nordic walkers across the Uk have been tasking themselves to photograph their local landmark statues to make them appear like Nordic walkers. The aim is to raise awareness of this growing activity and to encourage others to take part.
“Nordic Walking turns every walk into a workout” says Gill Stewart of Nordic walking UK ” Who better than our National heros to help us get the nation active?” she adds. Clearly Eric Morecombe. Admiral Lord Nelson and the Gormley figures all agree!
So, if you notice Winston Churchill or other National figures sporting a pair of Nordic walking poles today (Monday April 1st 2013) take a minute or two to find out why this activity is sweeping the nation by visiting www.nordicwalking.co.uk
And if you fancy adding a pair of poles to a stony figure near you in support of this cause, feel free to add the picture to our facebook page nordicwalkinguk !
