Training Walks

Our volunteer-led Training Walks are scheduled throughout the season in locations all across the country. Walkers of all fitness levels are welcome. We need volunteers like you to organize Training Walks in your area. 

Upcoming Training Walks

Please note that all walks are listed in Eastern Standard Time in the calendar. Click here for a full calendar of all upcoming walks.

In light of the situation regarding coronavirus (COVID19), Training Walks are still being lead under the discretion of the Training Walk Leader. Please also follow any guidelines and recommendations from your city, state, or Public Health Departments.

If a Walk is in your area and you plan on attending, please contact the Leader for more details regarding their Walk. Please do not attend a Training Walk if you are feeling sick. Washing hands and bringing disinfectant products, such as hand sanitizer or wipes, are great ways to stay healthy during your Training Walk.
