Nordic Walking

Unfortunately once again we have had to postpone our regular Nordic Walks, tasters and introductory courses.

As soon as the restrictions are lifted and it is safe, we will be running introductory courses in Ickworth NT on a weds morning/evening, West Stow Country Park on a Sat morning and at Needham Lake on a Mon morning.

Once you have completed the two introductory session you can join our regular Nordic Walking activities. There will be a follow up technique session after about a month.

Why not get it touch to express an interest


Unfortunately we will have to postpone the Peddars Way Ultra scheduled for 23 January and the Marriotts Way Half Marathon and Marathon on Sunday 14 February. we are committed to both events going ahead and once we are in clearer position we will be working on new dates

Entries are currently closed. Once we are happy that the event will go ahead will invite those on the pre entry waiting list to complete their entry. In the meantime, keep training!

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

Thank you for bearing with us

I had a career in housing nearly 30 years before deciding on a new challenge!

Alongside this I have always been a passionate endurance athlete.

I believe in chasing dreams; no way am I going to get 'old' and wish I had done that....

I enjoy empowering other people to make changes that have a positive impact on their lives, improving their fitness and wellbeing.
