Tracy Hall, Nordic Walking

Hello! My name is Tracy and I am Lead Instructor at Sherwood Nordic Walking.

I discovered Nordic Walking in 2016 when I was looking for an outdoor activity that would get me away from my desk and active outdoors. As soon as I joined my local Nordic Walking group and started walking regularly I found I had more energy, felt uplifted and generally happier and able to get on with my day-to-day life. I also made some fabulous new friends.

I enjoy being outside in the fresh air, blowing away the cobwebs, appreciating our beautiful countryside and noticing nature as it changes through the seasons – with Nordic Walking I can do all of this and get a great work out at the same time!

I am originally from Snowdonia and when I moved ‘Up North’ to the North Nottinghamshire/South Yorkshire border I struggled to find a local Nordic Walking group that offered me a good variety of walks not too far from my new home. A dear friend suggested I train as an Instructor and set up my own group and so Sherwood Nordic Walking was born.

I am fully insured and qualified to teach the INWA (International Nordic Walking) Nordic Walking technique and am currently offering monthly Beginner’s Technique courses,  Adventure walks of 4-6 miles and Walk leader-led steady Adventure walks of 4 miles.

Our regular venues for walks include Thoresby Park, Langold Country Park, Clumber Park, The Chesterfield Canal and Idle Valley. We also meet at various pub carparks and cafes and have a variety of countryside walks.

Nordic walking and meeting new and interesting people is so good for the mind, body and soul. Give it a go, we would love to meet you!


Tracy Hall is Lead Instructor at Sherwood Nordic Walking and along with Walk Leaders Liz and Tricia has regular walks on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at various locations across the area including Thoresby Park, Clumber Park, Langold Country Park, Idle Valley Nature reserve and along the Chesterfield canal.
