About Us

Black Country Nordic Walking is run by Mark Phillips and we have a team of instructors and walk leaders who provide Nordic walking programs, Learn to Nordic walk courses and regular weekly walks.
Our new HQ is Cannon Hill Park in Birmingham based at the Mac in the West Midlands where we provide our walking schedule. We provide 2 free taster sessions each month at the park and put on regular courses to get people qualified in Nordic Walking. Our new walking program is evolving all the time and in 2017 we will be providing walking weekends, weight loss walking and circuits amongst our regular walks and courses. We now have a weekly walk at Cannon hill Park every Sunday for everybody who has passed their Nordic walk course.
