"Walk, central PA, walk" is a grass roots effort to promote walking in groups throughout Central PA. We want to promote Active Living by offering multiple opportunities to get out and walk throughout the week. Our volunteer Walk Leaders lead walks that vary from "strolls" through the community to "fitness walks" with a pace of 20 minutes/mile or less, to weekend hikes, all with the goal of exercise for all in a social setting. We are always looking for Walk Leaders to help us spread this idea throughout Central PA. If you would like to start a weekly walking group in your neighborhood, please contact the Organizer.
Remember "Walk, central PA, walk" is a walk/hike at your own risk group. Our Meetup site is simply a platform to gather people together. We are not a professional service. The Walk Leaders who are walking/hiking with you may or may not have CPR abilities. They also are not required to have a first aid kit on them. They are not actual “leaders” but are simply creating a meeting point for you all to gather. All a Walk Leader is promising by posting a walk/hike on the "Walk, central PA, walk" calendar is that they will be there at the meeting time and help everyone gather. They will also ether serve as the caboose or assign a caboose to keep the group walking/hiking together. If you are joining in a walk/hike you have read and agreed to the waiver below.
