Want to enter a Nordic Walking Event? - 2007 Lakeland Trails Festivals Nordic Walking Challenge

Head to the Lake District (England) in 2007 and join these superb, well organised events with a unique class catering for the Nordic Walking enthusiast! Events from 5Km - 21Km.

Each of the 2007 Lakeland Trails Festivals has a Nordic Walking Challenge incorporated, with stunning, scenic, well-marked and marshalled courses passing through the iconic Lake District mountain landscape. The events make an ideal training goal to motivate you during your Nordic Walking. In partnership with EXEL, Nordic walking poles will be available for use, and instructors will be on hand to offer help and advice to novice Nordic Walkers, to encourage more people to take up our dynamic sport.

The Lakeland Trails festivals have a fun and carnival atmosphere, with live music, PA commentary, a large Entertainments marquee, a beer tent, food stalls and retail stands. For those with children and families, there are plenty of entertainments, with bouncy castles and slides, a 7.5m high climbing wall, face painting and Peter Rabbit Fun Trails - children's fun runs for the under 12's.
