Walking Program -- 5K training
We are pleased to announce our Fall 2017 Walk FIT program is open for registration! This program is specifically designed for individuals who want to start an outdoor fitness program and get active after a (perhaps) a summer away from training! It is also excellent for individuals who are taking a rest from running, and moms and dads - strollers are welcome so you can bring baby, too. This program will focus on building mileage so that team members can walk a 5k - specifically the Almond Bowl on November 5th, 2017 And you'll have the camaraderie of others just like you. Get ready to be with a highly social and supportive team!
Program Information Meeting and Fun Walk: Kickoff meeting is Wednesday, August 30th at 6:15pm. Meet the coaches, get information about the program, and update your gear so you're ready to start your training. Bring a friend! We'll also take everyone out for a short walk so that you can see how the programs are structured. We'd love to have a packed house in this program - limited to 30 walkers.
Meeting times: Weekly coached workouts will be on Wednesdays at 6:15 PM and Saturdays at 7:30 AM at various locations around Chico. The first workout will be held at the time of the kickoff meeting, your first walk as a team!
