Colin McLean – WALX Guide

Colin is a WALX guide for WALX Derwent and Dales and specialises in Speedhyking.

He was introduced to Nordic walking with Sam in 2016. Colin has enjoyed an active lifestyle for many years and was keen to add Nordic Walking to his weekly programme

Nordic Walking for Colin has brought the gym outside (whatever the weather) and provides some very effective all-round sport conditioning to complement his other outdoor activities.

An enthusiastic age-group triathlete, over the last 10 years, Colin has competed across all of the Triathlon distances including in 2015, the 140.6 mile “Copenhagen Ironman” swim, bike and run course.

He enjoys being physically active and for him Nordic Walking has provided not just an active workout but the opportunity to be in the company of like-minded people who enjoy being out and about in our local countryside.

Colin now delivers the Speedhyking sessions for our WALX weekly activities.
