Nordic Walking ESADE BCN – ESADE Creapolis

Saturday, 9 th of june
ESADE BCN – ESADE Creapolis Sant Cugat

Nordic Walking is an activity open to ESADE Alumni members and guests. It is a Nordic Walking march of 17,4 km, starting at ESADE Barcelona and finishing at ESADE Creapolis in Sant Cugat.

The march will be carried out in small groups, each one led by instructors who will teach the Nordic Walking techniques. The activity will be coordinated by Alex Perez, sports dietitian-nutritionist, columnist of Runner’s World and Desnivel magazines, and a Nordic Walking instructor. At the finish Alex will comment on some aspects of Nutrition and Sports.

It is a non-competitive activity and designed to be enjoyed amongst friends and family. To better adapt ourselves to the rhythm of all the participants, they will be divided into groups according to their estimated pace for the march. One group will be slightly faster than the other.

Nordic Walking is a technique that allows the body to work in a much more active way than traditional walking, adding the functional use of two walking poles to achieve a series of benefits. The poles are intended to involve as many muscles as possible, thus increasing the energy expenditure and promoting a beneficial cardiovascular exercise.

Our objective is for the participants to get to know the technique and the benefits of practising this sport, which in the Scandinavian countries already counts with more than one million fans.

The route that we will take will pass through trails in the heart of the Collserola Park, with beautiful views of both Barcelona and the Sant Cugat Valley. Refreshments will be offered half way through the march so that the participants can recover their strength. A picnic, with a gift raffle, will be offered at the end of the march at the ESADE Creapolis, where participants can share their experiences of the day with the instructors and friends.

At the end of the Picnic, Motor Munich will offer transportation with its fleet of BMW and MINI cars to the Sant Cugat Railway station.

 

Registration includes pole rental.

There will be prizes for all participants.
