Nordic walk in support of Comic Relief
HARDY WALKERS braved the rain to raise money for Comic Relief on Saturday (March 9).
Sporting red noses in support of the charity, walkers set out on a hike around Rockcliffe Hall’s 365 acre estate, in Hurworth near Darlington.
The Nordic walk –in which participants use specially designed poles to achieve a more intensive work out - was hosted by the resort’s fitness co-ordinator and Nordic walking instructor Peter Bell. It covered around two-and-a-half miles and was suitable for all levels of fitness.
Mr Bell said: “Nordic walking is great fun and we thought this might be a more unusual way to support Comic Relief. Fundraising using fitness not only raises money for a good cause, but also encourages people to get active.”
The relaxed walk around the grounds of the five star estate was followed by hot chocolate and biscuits for all participants.
