This time last week I had just completed the latest British Nordic Walking challenge event, along with twelve others from our club. I’ve spoken about these events before. There are currently four a year (last week’s event at Lydiard Park in Swindon is the closest to us) and you can choose a 5k, 10k or half marathon distance. You have to Nordic walk it and if you run or your technique is excessively dodgy you can be disqualified. It sounds scarier than it is!
