We're delighted to announce a new partnership! April 19 2023
We've been admirers and listeners to Mary Tweed's award-winning podcast for a long time here at British Nordic Walking. We love the combination of inspiration, information and general bonhomie. So we are excited to announce that we are sponsoring the podcast to work together to raise the profile of Nordic Walking and BNW.
CEO Catherine Hughes explained :
Partnering with Mary's Walking on Air podcast is a fantastic opportunity to spread the word about Nordic walking. We are aiming to increase awareness and participation in this accessible and enjoyable form of exercise. BNW are very proud to support Mary's podcast; it is a superb showcase of all the exciting developments in Nordic Walking.
Last year was an amazing year for Mary, both with growing the number of listeners and winning two awards. In March, we reported that the Suffolk-based Instructor was awarded Inspiration of the Year at the Sports and Recreation Alliance National Awards. In December, the awards continued to flow as Mary collected the Coaching Podcast of the Year Award from the UK Coaching.
"I am delighted that BNW is supporting the Walking On Air podcast. I have been proud to wear my bright red British Nordic Walking instructor's jacket for the last 9 years and to uphold INWA's values. As an instructor myself, I see the difference that Nordic Walking makes to people's daily lives and the supportive communities that are created around each class. It is a privilege to teach the BNW method, knowing that I am helping people get the most out of their Nordic Walking and hope that the podcast will encourage more people to grab a pair of poles, look up their nearest British Nordic Walking instructor and join the community."
