We love initiatives that inspire people to get out and active so when the South West Coast Path association got in touch to see if we could help them inspire people along their route we had to get involved.
SWCP had linked up with Active Devon who we have worked with before over the years and it soon became apparent that a NW course on the stunning North Devon Cost might be a great way to winkle (pardon the pun) people off their sofa’s for the initiative they were calling Couch to Coast!
That was not a problem for us as we have a great delivery Partner in the area who delivers courses and walks with her team of Ladies. Jane Cumming is also a physio so can help those not used to exercise or concerned about fitness or mobility.
We are delighted to see the first Nordic walking course is now available and that participants will also be able to attend a weekly walk as part of the scheme too. Even better that all those who take part will be able to browse Jane’s additional list of walks and possibly even be tempted to take their new skill further afield and join one of the 2,000 plus available every week in the UK
Who knows…… they may continue around the SW Cost Path and land up at NWUK HQ on the final section some day!
