The 2nd Annual North American Nordic Walking Expo is just 11 days away!June 12, 2010 the place to be is Hyland Lake Park Reserve in Bloomington, MN.
For the experienced and the curious Nordic Walker, this free all day event will feature classes and lectures by both national and local Nordic Walking experts, hands on exhibits from leading Nordic Walking companies, information from local walking and hiking groups and events, free introductory classes, and the chance to network with lots of other walkers at 10am in a fun, untimed, group walk around Hyland Lake.
This group walk will be the Nordic Walking version of Speed Dating. It’s your opportunity to link up with other NW’s in your neighborhood to form walking groups and clubs. It’s just the icing on the cake of a spectacular line up of classes and lectures.
When we formed Great Lakes Nordic Walkers, www.greatlakesnordicwalkers.com we had no idea that our dream of hosting a local Nordic Walking event would become a National Expo. Our partnership with Nordic Walking North America, www.nordicwalkingna.com, has made it possible to create an event that is drawing support and interest from all around North America. Even Skechers is coming with their new Fitness Walking shoe for you to try in a walk around the lake.
Check out the full schedule for the day at www.greatlakesnordicwalkers.com and plan to be at Hyland on Saturday, June 12. Remember, the Nordic Walking Queen has formally invited you to attend, how can you say no?
