About Us

Dalesway Nordic Walking offers Learn to Nordic Walk technique courses and regular walks in Ilkley and the surrounding areas. Geographically Ilkley is in Wharfedale at the southern tip of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

All sessions are friendly, sociable and fun, and some of the regular Nordic walks finish in cafes/pubs for after walk refreshments, so why not come along and make some new friends along the way too!

Jane Thomas

I am Personal Trainer, accredited NWUK Instructor (Delivery Partner) and run Dalesway Nordic Walking.

A little history:
Having always enjoyed exercising I decided to train as a Personal Trainer and Sports Massage Therapist in 2007. For 8 years I loved helping people get fitter and healthier through Personal Training, Running groups, and Nordic walking (I founded Nordic Walking Watford in 2012) and then in late 2016 I moved up to Ilkley, a beautiful walking destination, and started Dalesway Nordic Walking in July 2017.

I like to think that my style is one of gently ‘persuasive’ encouragement! I hope that my love of this amazing activity rubs off on you, so come and enjoy Nordic Walking with me, and be persuaded into a healthier, fitter, you! 🙂

Liz McKeown

Liz qualified as a Walk Leader in early 2019, and was trained by NWUK.

Liz says:
“I’ve always enjoyed exercise and when not walking you’ll find me playing my ukulele in the Otley Ukulele Orchestra. Since starting Nordic Walking with Jane last year I have increased my fitness, met a new group of wonderful friends and have found the perfect outside gym. Becoming a walk leader is the icing on the cake.”

First Aid trained.
