Added to The Purbeck Outdoor Weekend in 2016 the Purbeck Nordic Walking Festival UK is the creation of The Purbeck Outdoor Weekend and Nordic Walking UK. The 2016 festival was a huge success and this year aims to be even bigger with 60+ walks planned and of course the Nordic Walking challenge events specifically for Nordic Walkers which will grow into legendary routes for enthusiasts from around the world
Come and enjoy spectacular scenery and camaraderie as you challenge YOURSELF to tackle these iconic routes along the Coastal paths and wild terrain of the Isle of Purbeck. Whilst there are medals and T shirts for all finishers, these events are not all about speed or racing so feel free to take part as a group or to go it alone.
You will walk along cliff tops, through country parks, past stunning coves and through lost villages. Views of Castles, steam railways, lighthouses and breath taking scenery will make up for the tough parts where you will be climbing or descending the chalk ridges to define the area which is a World heritage site.
