You've seen the Biathlon during the winter olympics - Nordic skiing and shooting. Well, this is Nerf guns with Nordic Walking. Binerflon is a new, fun and safe activity which hides physical activity behind the fun. Youngsters get a good bit of exercise without realising they are actually exercising. The biathlon of Nordic Walking and NERF gun target shooting is aimed at kids aged 7 - 14, however parents usually see how much fun it is and want to participate along-side the youngsters!
What to Expect:
Pulses will get racing from the start with some Nordic walking. You will use walking poles to get a full body work out, a great aerobic exercise and perfect for everyone new to exercise.
You will then have to slow your heart rate down as you try to take a steady aim in the biathlon style shooting range - similar to what is used in the winter olympics. Nerf guns fire harmless foam darts - kids beware, your parents are going to want some of the action!
What to Bring:
- Comfy shoes
- Dress for the weather, you will be outside for the duration of the activity.
