Nordic walking in the Brecon Beacons

Due to popular demand, the Age Cymru Nordic Walking Programme and Brecon Beacons National Park Authority are running another Nordic walking taster session in the Brecon Beacons on Saturday 14 August.

This is a chance to learn the basic techniques of Nordic walking taught by Age Cymru’s International Nordic Walking Federation Instructors.

The walk, which is sponsored by Western Power Distribution, takes place takes place at the National Park Visitor Centre near Libanus in Powys.

Age Cymru’s Nordic Walking co-ordinator, Glenn Little says:

“We ran a very successful Nordic walking event on 17 July and were inundated with requests from people who wanted us to organise another walk.

“Nordic walking involves walking with a ski-type pole in each hand.

“You exercise 90 per cent of your muscles and you also burn 20 per cent more calories than ordinary walking at the same speed.

“Nordic walking is also less tiring than normal walking, and it can increase your heart rate by up to 13 per cent so that you get more benefit through less effort.”

“So come along on 14 August and enjoy a day out in the Brecon Beacons and get a taste of Nordic walking.”
