Walking To Wellness

Who are Harrow Striders?

Harrow Striders was started by Sue & Den Collen. After enjoying Nordic walking together we wanted to share the health and wellness benefits we experienced with others in our local communities.

Harrow has a huge array of free green spaces, parks and woodland areas. Together as Harrow Striders, Sue and Den have developed their Nordic walking programmes around these outdoor spaces to offer a wide variety of walks to meet the differing needs of people in our community.

There are weekly walks in the parks around Harrow and more adventurous walks in the evenings and weekends in country parks and nature reserves around Stanmore. We aim to end our walks with a social chat and cup of tea or coffee when we can.

Harrow Striders is also developing an Urban walking programme that brings Nordic walking directly into some of the built up areas in Harrow beginning with Grange Farm Estate.

Harrow Striders is a full delivery partner of Nordic Walking UK and Sue & Den are both qualified Nordic Walking UK instructors. Sue has a level 2 YMCA diploma in fitness instruction and have both passed a First Aid at work course in March 2017.
