Walk around the World!

Not only is May National Walking Month, it also brings us World Nordic Walking Day  - Saturday 20th May 2023. The theme decided by INWA for this years celebration of Nordic Walking is Fun, Friendship and Freedom. Here at British Nordic Walking, we can't think of a better theme to represent what our walkers share each time they step out together.

"One of the best things about Nordic Walking is the life friends you make along the journey!" explains Sara Evans from SE Nordic Walking in Essex. Sara recently took a group of her walkers to London for a fun day out - friends who exercise together! 

"Nothing beats the feeling of freedom you get from being outdoors," says Derbyshire based Instructor, Rachel Davis. "Even if the weather is bad, with the right clothes you really feel the benefit of exercising outdoors within a few minutes." 

Nordic Walking is not only a brilliant physical exercise, being outside, socialising with friends also helps improve mental health. INWA Instructors and groups are welcoming and inclusive - why not book yourself a class today! To find a local class, use our online search  facility.
