Nordic Walking

Unfortunately following the announcement from the Government on 23 December that Suffolk will be moving into Tier 4 on Boxing Day, once again we will have to postpone our regular Nordic Walks, tasters and introductory courses. We are however able to still offer one to one tuition. Please contact us for more information.


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 Sat (12 December).

Unfortunately following the announcement from the Government on 23 December that Suffolk will be moving into Tier 4 on Boxing Day, 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
