We are a network of walkers in Greater Kalamazoo and Portage. We are fitness walkers, hikers, race walkers, and Nordic pole walkers.

Kazoo Walkers and Hikers Meetup will alert you to walks, hikes, and races on your side of town: Portage or on Kalamazoo's northside, eastside, southside, westside, and beyond.

Meetup.com helps us:

1. To connect people, create walking groups in neighborhoods, plan hiking events, and encourage special interest walkers such as race walkers and Nordic pole walkers to connect.

2. To populate the Kazoo Walkers and Hikers Meetup calendar with the walks or hikes lead by you and other organizations in our community.

Note: There is an annual membership fee of to participate in Kazoo Walkers and Hikers Meetups, which is the event calendar and networking tool for Kalamazoo Valley Walkers (KVW) club. The $12 annual membership fee will pay for the cost of the meetup.com site.   KVW was formed in 1991 and is a 501c3 volunteer-run organization.
