Nordic Walking

Our regular Nordic Walks, taster sessions and courses have been suspended in line with current UK Government guidelines, to be resumed on 3rd December. We are however, offering one to one sessions during the Lockdown. In addition we are running a lockdown challenge for our regular Nordic Walkers, see our Facebook page for more details.


We successfully held the Beowulf Ultra (formerly the Kings Forest Ultra) (17 Oct) and the Festive Edition of the Bury to Clare in support of St Nicholas Hospice is scheduled for Sat 12 December.

Peddars Way Ultra 23 January and Marriotts Way Half Marathon and Marathon on Sunday 14 February - we are committed to both events going ahead. You will be placed on a pre entry waiting list to reduce both your financial risk and ours! Once we are happy that the event will go ahead will invite you to complete your entry. We are hoping to achieve this by early December for the Peddars Way Ultra and early January for the Marriott's. In the meantime, keep training!

We are working hard to make sure our events are safe and working within the UK Government guidelines .

Hopefully we will have a full schedule of events in 2021

Thank you for bearing with us
