Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team learn Nordic walking skills!

Posted: 15/07/2021

Such a fun morning spent with the guys from the Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team working on their Nordic Walking skills to help them get even faster and more efficiently up and down the hills to rescue sites.
We covered posture, speed, propulsion and going downhill with speed.
It had them skipping with joy!

This is what they said...
"Just when we thought we're quite good at walking in the hills.
This morning we teamed up with the excellent Nicola Sproson from WALX Helvellyn Ullswater for some Nordic Walking tuition. Nicola showed us how with the right Nordic Walking techniques, we will get even faster and more efficiently up and down the hill. By the end of our 3 hr session she even got us skipping with joy!"
