Dear INWA Member, National Trainers and INWA instructors,
This year the INWA Convention 2019 will be held in Russia. Russian Nordic Walking Association (RNWA) is pleased to host this convention.
Convention place is near Moscow, in Sergiev Posad, which is located by the about 70 km north east from Moscow.
Sergiev Posab grew in the 15th century around one of the greatest of Russian monasteries, the Trinity Lavra, established by St. Sergius of Radonezh, still (as of 2015) one of the largest monasteries in RussiaTown. Status was granted to Sergiyev Posad in 1742. The town’s name, alluding to St. Sergius, has strong religious connotations. Soviet authorities changed it first to just Sergiyev in 1919, and then to Zagorsk in 1930, in memory of the revolutionary Vladimir Mikhailovich Zagorsky. The original name was restored in 1991.
INWA convention is open for all the INWA member organisations, National Trainers and INWA instructors. We will be able to accept max. 100 participants and it is important that you secure your participation earliest possible.
The convention will be held from 27th until 28th September 2019.
On the 27th September the program will be very attractive with a new vision and CPD according to the latest developments in International Nordic Walking. Presentation of our new manual with a lot of new and updated material. On 28th September, our member RNWA will prepare an attractive program.
