British Nordic Walking Event – Fourteen Locks Canal Centre – 30th June

Nordic Walking – A great way to get fit and meet new friends
Ed Woolley (British Nordic Walking instructor) runs five walks per week in Caerphilly borough and Newport. Over a span of eight years Ed has built a strong class that meet every week in a diverse range of locations from Cwmcarn Scenic Drive down to the Newport wetlands – there is always something new to see, changing weather conditions, seasons, and a whole host of birds and wildlife.
On June 30th this year a number of the class will be taking part in an event organised by British Nordic Walking. It takes place at Fourteen Locks Canal Centre in Rogerstone. It’s a 10k walk leaving the visitors centre and up the canal path towards Risca and back. This is a chance to meet the Nordic Walking community, whether it’s a leisure walk or something more competitive. Everyone is welcome and it promises to be a great day.
Before any new members take part in a walk, Ed and co-instuctor Sheila go through the technique that enables us to all Nordic Walk correctly – once learned it soon becomes natural.
There are many benefits to Nordic Walking. The main benefits are: improvement of posture and balance and less impact on joints. Also consider:
• appeals to all ages and fitness levels
• portable
• sociable
• no need to wear special clothing
• affordable
