One thought on “Nordic Walking

  1. Greetings from Carlton & Gedling U3A

    I am the interest group co-ordinator for our U3A and we currently have a couple of taster sessions of Nordic walking. There are a number of things that have raised some concerns about moving on with this to become a fully-fledged group.
    I am firstly concerned about the need for a trainer to be present at each walk, which being a taster session we of course engage. Is your group fortunate enough to have someone who is trained and provides the service as part of being a U3A member? If not, do you engage a trainer, or properly qualified person to lead the group?
    The need for specific equipment, i.e. Poles. Does each member supply their own or do you have an arrangement for them to be hired each time?
    This activity has sparked a great deal of interest within our U3A and I would like to see it take off and develop, but without the right sort of leader, able to undertake training, and the provision of specific equipment, I’m not quite sure that we can go any further than just point members towards a properly operated specialist Nordic walking group.
    Are you perhaps able to help me please, and provide any hints or tips on establishing this type of group?
    Many thanks
    Andrew Merriman
