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

Kzoo 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 this Meetup calendar with the walks or hikes lead by you and other organizations in our community.  The events posted will include walks at races, charity walks and special interest events.

Most events are organized and hosted by a local organization such as

  • Chief Nooday Chapter of the North Country Trail,
  • Kalamazoo Nature Center,
  • Pierce Cedar Creek Institute,
  • Gazelle Sports, and
  • Kalamazoo County Parks for the Kalamazoo River Valley Trail (KRVT).

Other events are lead by volunteers who are walkers and hikers and want to share their favorite trail with you.

You may use this meetup to post  an ongoing event or a one-time event on a day, time and place in our area that may attract others to join you.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
