Chris Lomas

Chris is a member of the Social Committee and participates in organising social events and walks for our members.

A friend introduced me to Matt and Nordic Walking in June 2016 after a 33-year relationship breakdown and a particularly challenging time in my life.
I suffer with epilepsy and found myself lost and alone with no confidence and very low self-esteem.
I had kept myself reasonably fit with walking, fell-walking and going to the gym and found I instantly took to Nordic Walking as a new way of exercising. 
I have now completed seven 10k Walk competitions and had the confidence and belief to complete the 21 mile Preston Guild Wheel Walk all with the help and encouragement which has come from the truly wonderful and very dear friends I’ve made over the last 18-months. I couldn’t imagine my life without them all or the Nordic Walking now.
