Walk Description:

After our warm up on the green in Alness park, we practice our basic Gear 1 Nordic Walking technique, whilst adding some Gear 2 and Gear 3 sprints along the way.  The route continues on the path up along Yankee Pier.  This provides an excellent surface to pick up pace and practice more intensive Nordic Walking.  We return via Dalmore Distillery and continue on tarmac paths up a steep hill and along past Alness Academy and back down to where we started.

You will need shoes for your Nordic poles as this walk is a mix of path and hard surface.

Please wear trainers and a warm jacket as per your last session.
