This Sunday 15th May, Prima Solutions will sponsor the first British Nordic Walking Challenge of 2016 at Wollaton Park in Nottingham.
2016 is the third year of the British Nordic Walking Challenge Series, following the International Nordic Walking Federation race rules and distances. Our relationship with British Nordic Walking first began after Fiona – our non-executive director – learned that young people suffering from anxiety could benefit hugely from Nordic Walking. As a mentor for local young person’s charity TwentyTwenty, Fiona took one of her mentees to participate in some Nordic Walking training and found it a fantastic activity, before taking part in the 2015 5k challenge!
What is great about Nordic Walking is the health benefits it can bring – both physical and psychological – to people of all ages. Using specially designed poles to enhance the natural walking experience, Nordic Walking induces calming and rhythmic influences in what is also a welcoming social event with a festival atmosphere.
Prima Solutions is proud to support this activity and the many benefits that it brings.
Wishing British Nordic Walking a happy and successful event!
