Out There Nordic will be hosting a local Walk Around the Block on October 2nd, 2022. The goal is to use pole hiking as a means of endurance training for a half/ full ski marathon, to get outside or for exercise. The key to this event is gradually building up miles or k’s prior to the big day. Out There Nordic will be hosting pole hikes from May to August. If the 28 mile Walk Around the Block is too much to bite off this season, please feel free to join us for the Pole Hike options.
There is a prize available to those who are committed to make themselves better. The first 8 participants that complete 3 of 5 hikes AND complete the Walk Around the Block with us will receive a Specialty Out There Nordic piece of clothing. Please note that there is a set course of 28 miles for the Walk Around the Block in the Blue Hills. This tried and true course involves blacktop, gravel roads and has some elevation gain.
6 Hour Challenge
The Challenge – to perform 6 hours (360 minutes) of exercise in a 9 hour (540 minute) window to allow for rest, change of venue and nutrition. There will be a window of days in early September to perform the challenge. Once the Challenge is completed, you will send in your log to gain entries into a Fabulous Raffle. One entry for each mode of exercise. You must use at least 2 modes of exercise with a max of 7 modes of exercise. This challenge is open to anyone, anywhere.
Registration will open in August. Once complete, you will receive your 6hr Challenge Packet. Then you will have time to plan out your challenge. There will be an acceptable list of modes of exercises with a chance for you to lobby to get an exercise approved for all participants.
