THE WALKING GROUP OF RALEIGH... proudly sets the bar very high and stands out from ALL the other walking groups within the Raleigh area because of the "CONSISTENCY" of our scheduled walks, as well as, the "GREATER" number of miles, we prefer to cover per walk; therefore, we tend to be "more selective" in choosing and retaining our members.With us "active membership has its privileges" - monthly social outings, custom t-shirts, etc.
ALL MEMBERS are required to WALK AT LEAST (1X) PER MONTH in order to remain in the group and to be considered "ACTIVE". We are very well-known in town, but highly respected for conducting "MONTHLY CUTS" because it ensures the integrity of our private and quite active walking group.
Our rather advanced walking group was exclusively created for VERYACTIVE, FRIENDLY, SUPPORTIVE, POSITIVE; MATURE ADULTS who truly enjoy walking for exercise with some #VeryCoolMembers. We proudly have both female and male members in our very close and tight-knit group, who wish to remain and/or get into better shape via consistent walking. IF you get selected to become a new member, please be prepared to put in the necessary time and effort each month, so you can remain being a #VeryCoolMember.
WALKS will range from (4 to 8) MILES; all new members will always have the option of walking half the distance until they can work their way up to completing the entire walk; which typically, happens after two walks with the group. All members walk at a pace most comfortable for them, but the vast majority of our #VeryCoolMembers enjoy taking rather brisk walks; can comfortably walk (5) MILES in an hour.
ATTENDANCE POLICY: Any member who RSVP's for a walk/hike and arrives after our start time, unfortunately, will be left behind, so please arrive a few minutes early. Members who don't become active within 30 DAYS of joining the group; any NO-SHOW w/ CONFIRMED RSVP, will be automatically cut from the group permanently.
Unlike, all the others in town, we don't ever permit sideline spectators in our group - you must WALK and remain active every single month or you will be cut.
ALL MEMBERS must carefully read the LIABILITY WAIVER located on the pages section. Please also have an UPDATED; CLEAR PHOTO of your FACE posted and maintained on your profile at all times -- PRIOR to being accepted into the group for safety reasons.
*(No harassment, judgment, negativity, soliciting or spamming of any kind is ever permitted among our private members or you will be swiftly REMOVED; BANNED)
