image description



This Workshop has now SOLD OUT, however, it may be worth contacting me by phone (07931 580 648) in case of cancellations.  If you would like to be the first to hear about the next workshop, then please do get in touch (mary@nordicwalkingeastanglia.co.uk) and I will ensure that I contact you as soon as new dates are released.

This Workshop will take you from absolute beginner to completing the internationally recognised Nordic Walking technique, enabling you to turn your walk into a workout and reaping the full benefits that include reduced neck & shoulder tension; reduced impact through the joints; increased calorie burn; toning of waist and upper arms; improved fitness and sense of wellbeing; and lots of fun.  Nordic Walking is open to everyone regardless of age, gender or fitness level.  If you can walk, you can nordic walk.  If you would like to know more before you sign up, feel free to call me on 07931 580 648 for a chat.

All Nordic Walking East Anglia classes will comply with the latest government regulations.  Please read our guidelines and delivery plan so that you know what to expect.


Please meet as close to the park entrance near The Old Goods Shed. I will be wearing a bright red jacket and have a bag of Nordic Walking poles, so should be easy to spot. This class will last 2 hours (10.30-12.30), during which time we will begin learning the first technique points of the 10 step British Nordic Walking Technique. There will be a short break half way through, so please bring a drink and a snack. In the two hours we will probably cover about 4 miles.  By the end of the two days, you will have the skills to continue Nordic Walking in your own time or to join one of the regular classes that run in Clare Park on Mondays and Fridays.


There is pay and display parking at Clare Castle Country Park costing £2.


Please wear comfortable clothes and either trainers or a pair of waterproof walking shoes. I will provide poles.


This session is one of two 2 x hour sessions - the second taking place at the earlier time of 9.30-11.30 on Sunday 16th January - that comprise the Beginners Workshop and costs £50 for the course. Payment can be in advance by bank transfer.

Cancellation Policy

If you cancel 14 or more days in advance, we will offer you a full refund. After this time, we will only be able to offer a refund, if we manage to fill your place.

NB This course will only go ahead if there are a minimum of four people on the course. If there are less than four, I will contact all those who have signed up and offer a private 3 hour lesson for the same fee.
