Erie Never Stops Walking

Join us on the Erie Community Center walking track for this indoor walking program. This program offers two days a week to walk as a group. We will gather on Mondays as a group on the bridge and then walk the track for an hour. You can then choose to walk either Wednesday or Thursday as your second day. On Mondays the group is lead by a staff member who is there to assist and help you. The goal of each session is to “walk” the distance to a designated location on a map, and the ultimate goal after each session is to walk or run a 5K race together. After each session we will have a party to celebrate our great successes! Registration is not required. For questions or more information, please call 303.926.2795.
