Court Hey Nordic Walkers taking part in Knowsley Challenge Walk

Nordic Pole Walking started out in the early 20th century as a way of keeping cross-country skiers fit during the Finnish summers.  It is a specific training technique designed to target 90 per cent of the body muscles without causing muscle fatigue.  It burns up to 20 per cent more calories than normal walking if the correct technique is used and perfectly combines the mental health benefits of effective exercise with those of being outdoors.

Nordic Walking led by the Great Outdoors Project
Regular Nordic Walks at Court Hey Park led by qualified instructors.
Thursdays 10am, weekly.
Knowsley residents only. All abilities welcome. Poles and instruction provided.
Meet at The National Wildflower Centre Cornflower Café @

Nordic Pole Walking along Liverpool Loop Line

Volunteer Walks led by Community walk leaders.
