Event description

Description

We are delighted to announce the second British Nordic Walking Exel Challenge on Sunday 30 June at Fourteen Locks, Newport, Wales. It’s a great opportunity to join fellow Nordic Walkers from across the UK. Fourteen Locks has been here since 1794, when it was constructed to assist with the movement of Iron and Coal during the Industrial Revolution, the goods were transported to Newport where they were shipped from the docks all around the world, including drain covers that can be found around the Mediterranean and much further afield! The canal was still in operation during the second world war, but by the 1960s was left neglected, it has been the work of the local supporters and Councils that has now developed it as an area of interest and is continuing their work to bring it back to its former glory.

Please note that this year, due to recent resurfacing, the route for the Challenge Walk will be on tarmac.
