Welcome to the the Long Beach Area Walking Group! Our events focus on 2-4 mile walks, including trail walks and easy to moderate hikes.
Our activities are geared to folks 45(+). We definitely challenge ourselves, yet our physical activities are designed for fitness and fun.
We love the outdoors, ocean and So Cal habitats, so we find gorgeous walks and trails that are good for both body and soul! We also do sunset walks to enjoy all the beauty of water and sky at every time of day and season.
Most of our walks and activities take place in and around Long Beach. Occasionally we have activities like nature walks and hike in locations in San Pedro and Palos Verdes Peninsula
Also, our group also offers a variety of fun activities -- kayaking, movies, dining out together, summer concerts in the Long Beach parks. Above all, we love to socialize, support each other to get and stay fit, and have good times together!
We really look forward to our members participating in our meet ups. So get fit and socialize with us!
By joining our group, you participate in all of our activities voluntarily, and you hold the group, its organizers, participants, affiliates harmless in the case of your accidental injury or death.
Please be aware that it costs the organizers $200 per year for the Long Beach Area Walking Group (and over a period of years the costs add up). Therefore, as well as to offer special social events, the group does require a small $5.00 annual membership fee. The fee is payable online with credit card; but, better yet, just give a check or cash to the event host at any event you attend. There is a 180-day grace period from the time you first join the group after which, if the dues are unpaid, you will be dropped from the group.
Our organizers and event hosts are volunteers who put in extensive time, energy, and commitment toward planning and leading events. We do this gladly! --but if you RSVP "YES," please show up-- or change your RSVP to "NO." At this point, we don't have a No Show policy, but we do note attendees and non-attendees.
Again, welcome to our wonderful group. Thank you for joining the Long Beach Area Walking Group. You are going to discover a great group of people and terrific events. So now, come join the FUN!
