MN Walking Meetup is a friendly group, with walks at a moderate pace. Sorry, no kiddos or pets! Just adult people. Meet new walking buddies & explore parks and natural areas in the Twin Cities metro area. Note: please attend "scent-free;" we want to smell the good natural smells, not your perfume/cologne.
We usually kick off within 10 minutes of the posted start time with whomever has shown up by then. Please allow enough time to get to the walk location, to avoid disappointment and not keep others waiting.
If these crowdsourced group walks enhance your life, consider using the "Chip In" button now and then as a "thank you." The organizer person is charged a monthly online hosting fee by Meetup.com, which otherwise comes from her own pocket. Even $5 helps keep the group going. Thx.
NOTE: To avoid favoritism, we do not do ANY charity walks. Also, this is a not a business networking group. Thanks for understanding!
Meetup designed this platform to make it easy for you to set up your own walks. No walks near you? Well, look at your calendar for a day/time you can commit to, decide on a location and how to meet, and post the info using the Suggested tab on the Walking Meetup home page. Probably other people will join you--there are thousands of Walking Meetup folks scattered all over the metro area (and beyond). If not enough people sign up the first time you offer a walk, cancel it and try a different day/time.
Many walkers do not think of themselves as leaders, and the good news is you don't have to be. Just post a suggestion, and see what happens. If not enough people RSVP, you can feel free to cancel or re-schedule it.
