Nordic Walking

We are running regular beginners courses so get in touch and let us get you started.

Once you have completed a beginners courses you can join our regular Nordic Walking activities.

On our group walks you will be guided on a risk assessed route that has been chosen for its interest, distance, location, parking and, if possible, its facilities.

Each Nordic Walk is led by either Sara or me or both of us. We are instructor members of British Nordic Walking and the International Nordic Walking Federation. I also hold the Lowland Walk Leader qualification. We both have up to date outdoor first aid qualifications. We are fully insured to lead and take you out.

We will give on-going coaching on technique should you wish - just ask!

You will meet lovely like-minded people on our group walks, and you can enjoy the route without the worry about where you are going, in the knowledge that the route is safe and suitable.

So, switch off and enjoy your walk with us.

Volunteer Crew

Positive Steps holds several events during the year for runners/walkers to challenge themselves and/or raise money for charity. For every event a team of volunteer Crew provides essential support to help the day go smoothly and give plenty of enthusiasm and encouragement to the participants.

Why volunteer?

Whether you are a runner/walker yourself or come along to support a friend or family member, we’d love you to invite you to be part of the Crew. Your support can make all the difference to their enjoyment of the event, and it’s fun! Volunteer experience can also give you the chance to learn new skills, offer your talents and boost your CV.

What will I be asked to do?

There will be a variety of jobs available on the day e.g. registering participants, car parking duties, helping with food/drink on a checkpoint, awarding medals. If you have anything in particular you’d like to do, just let us know!

Will I need training?

No experience is required and if you’re new to volunteering at our events, we’ll make sure you work alongside an experienced Crew member.

Crew bonus!

If you volunteer for us we’d like to thank you with a race ‘credit’ to take part in a future event. Volunteering for up to 4 hours will earn you a credit worth 50% of a race entry, volunteering over 4 hours will earn you a credit worth 100% of a race entry.

Join the Crew!
