Although we certainly don't need celebrities to convince us about the benefits of Nordic Walking, I thought it would be fun to do a roundup of celebrities who endorse Nordic Walking or who are keen Nordic Walkers themselves. (I would define 'celebrities', quite loosely, as people with frequent or high media exposure.)
The ones I've come across are, in no particular order:
Clare Balding Nordic Walking with INWA instructors Catherine Hughes and Rachel Davis
BBC presenter, journalist and writer Clare Balding covered Nordic Walking on her BBC Radio 4 programme Ramblings. You can listen to the episode Nordic Walking in Bramcote Park, Nottingham, which was broadcast in March 2015, here.
Former professional triathlete and four-time Ironman Triathlon World Champion Chrissie Wellington said in 2015 that she's become a Nordic Walking convert and that she would like to see more Nordic Walkers involved in Parkrun.
