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.

Kevin and Team

Kevin Marshall

Biography

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

Kevin has always been a passionate endurance athlete, completing numerous challenges since the late 70's including cycling Lands End to John O'Groats, completing 23 Long Distance Walkers Association annual 100 mile challenges, representing England in 24hour race walking events and completing the Lakeland 100 (4 times).

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.
