We are looking at walking post Covid-19. During the Covid-19 pandemic we put our programme on hold. This was a difficult time for us as well as for our wonderful group of walkers, the Nordic Nuts.
I have kept in touch with as many of the group as possible, during this time. It has been great to hear of some of you getting out walking. I am also aware of those who haven’t had a chance to get out, have been shielding or are key workers and have found it difficult to find the energy to get out and about.
I have contacted our newsletter subscribers and our regular walkers and they were interested in starting the walks again.
We are therefore holding our Getting back to Nordic Walking beach walk on Saturday 27 June 2020 at Cresswell Beach.
Cresswell Beach is ideal for our first walk and will allow us plenty of room to follow the government’s social distancing guidelines.
Your safety is paramount to us. Therefore, I thought it would be a good idea to let you know what to expect, if you are able to join us.
Firstly, there will be a reminder of technique prior to the walk. Then, dependent on numbers, we will split into two groups (maximum 5 per group). I will take those who don’t want to walk far (up to 3 miles). Martin will lead those walkers who would like to walk a bit further (around 5-6 miles).
We will have anti-bacterial gel available and all our poles and gloves have been cleaned for those of you who borrow them.
We do hope you will be able to join us on Saturday or maybe on one of our future walks, as we start to get back to something like normal.
