Beginner Walk/Jog 5K Delray A1A

You have to start somewhere. This walk/jog is ideal for anyone who would prefer to walk a shorter distance or begin to train for a 5K.

This is an exercise walk/jog on concrete but could also move onto the beach depending on the group's preferences. Everyone will have varying abilities. I will be walking and jogging intervals at a slow pace. We have been using the Couch to 5K app. This event uses a straight forward path. You cannot get lost even if you chose a slower or faster pace.

We are meeting in Veteran's Park by the Atlantic Avenue Intercoastal Bridge in Delray. We will walk/jog anywhere between 3.25 miles and 4 miles from Veteran's Park to Linton Blvd and back. We will not begin jogging until we get to A1A.

Meet at 8:00AM and walk at 8:15AM.

You will need water to participate in this walk/jog.


Directions from I-95: Get off at exit 52 and head east on W Atlantic Avenue, passing thru the downtown area. Just before the drawbridge and intercoastal turn left into the Atlantic Plaza. The park is off to the right. Parking is free for 2 hours. Look for a silver Toyota Camry parked towards the back of the lot.

Please follow these directions. Google or Suri may give incorrect directions using the Veteran's Clubhouse address.

    I am sorry, it can be overwhelming. This group is fairly large and there is more than one organizer. You are correct. There is a walk at the Cove in Deerfield on Wednesday evening and a walk in The Township on Lyons.

    Feeling a bit over whelmed. There seem to be more than one walk at differenct sites-times on the same day. I plan to walk Lynns Rd Wednesday. Still on? There is also a walk in Deerfield Bch too?

    Ladies, we do have some evening walks during the week. I will be at Tradewinds Park tonight at 6:15PM and Deerfield Beach at 6:15PM and if anyone wants to walk/jog I can do that. I may also do some Boca/Delray events in the evening, schedule permitting.

    Just joined the group and hoping that you have evening or week-end walks.

    This group sounds like a winner to me. Cannot make this first one; working full time. Although, in the future, I will consider taking a vacation day off work to attend.... just getting started ... need to work up... jogging may be too much... used to run, but not now
