Nordic Walk around Repton Park & Claybury Woods
Redbridge Council in partnership with RPRA and First Port, are hosting a Nordic Walk and associated History Talk about Repton Park on Saturday 20 July 2019 at 10:00am.
The walk will last for two hours and will be lead by a qualified Nordic Walking coach who is part of Redbridge Council’s Sport & Health Team.
Nordic walking is a total body version of walking and exercises the upper body by use of specially designed poles (they look like ski poles). It is suitable for non-athletes and people of all ages. The walk will be at a steady pace with lots of breaks and some light exercises along the way.
The History Talk will focus on Claybury Hall and its amazing parkland designed by Sir Humphrey Repton, which later became Claybury Asylum and now Repton Park.
There are only 30 spaces available at this first event which is also open to Redbridge Council’s Nordic Walking Group, but if it is a success, we will arrange more events with Redbridge Council who are keen to facilitate them. Spaces are on a first-come first served basis and must be booked through the Eventbrite website using the link below.
If you don’t have walking poles, they can be loaned to you on the day.
We hope to see some of you on the day.
