A club dedicated to promoting walking for health, recreation, and competition.
The New Albany Walking Club was established in 2003 by Phil Heit. Phil had been running marathons for over thirty years. He also had been very active in the running community, having directed a number of major races throughout Central Ohio. After many years of running took its toll on his knees, Phil began to walk. He noticed that he could derive the same benefits walking as he could through running. Among these benefits were endurance training, speed workouts, racing, and time goals. The physical, mental, and social benefits also became evident. Thus, the idea of a club for walkers was conceived.
Membership in the New Albany Walking Club is open to women and men of all ages. We meet every Sunday morning at 7:30 inside the Philip Heit Center for Healthy New Albany, 150 W. Main St., New Albany, OH 43054. Our walks range from 2 - 5 miles and will go through the scenic paths of the New Albany communities. Members will enjoy the camaraderie of others during walks.
See details below:
We will meet inside the Heit Center promptly at 7:30 am on Sunday mornings. Remember to hydrate before coming to walk and while walking. Please bring your own water bottle that can be refilled while inside the building. Coffee, tea, and snacks are provided.
Look forward to seeing you for a Sunday Walk in New Albany, OH
