Nordic pole walking groups expand

Nordic Pole Walking classes have proven to be extremely popular so are now offered in Castlemaine, Harcourt, Newstead, and Maldon.

A team of volunteers have recently had their qualifications updated by the Nordic Academy and as a result are enthusiastic to offer this opportunity in more locations across Mount Alexander Shire. Healthy Heart of Victoria funding provided this opportunity to volunteers.

Volunteers lead the groups and teach participants Nordic Pole Walking skills over a school term, which is about 10 weeks.

Nordic poles are available for use in classes for the duration of the course, and volunteers can assist participants to purchase their own discounted poles if they choose to continue.

Limited spaces are available in all the groups which are kept purposely small to maximise participant safety. There is no cost for the groups which start after Anzac Day.

Castlemaine Botanical Gardens groups run at 9.30am on Mondays and 2pm on Tuesdays. The Harcourt Group is at 9.30am on Wednesdays and the Newstead group is at 9.30am on Thursdays.  An evening group at 4.30pm on Wednesday meets at Maldon Train Station.

This Nordic Pole Walking program is a Castlemaine Health program which was developed in partnership with Castlemaine Community House.
