IOWA'S WALKING CLUB WELCOMES YOU

Iowa's Walking Club promotes physical fitness through noncompetitive sporting events. Our events are designed to help community members have fun, become fit, and make friends. We hope you'll join us!

 

COVID-19 UPDATE

Group walks and traditional events cancelled

Because of the soaring rate of infections from covid-19, all group walks and traditional events have been canceled until March 1. This includes

  • Friday, Nov 27 #OptOutside

  • All weekday walking

  • New Year's Day Kickoff on Jan 1, 2021

  • Skywalk on Feb 13, 2021


We are extremely disappointed to have to make this decision, but the risks are too high for the club. Of course, the year round and seasonal events remain available. You can walk those when you choose, with whomever you choose.

We continue to follow federal, state, and local guidelines while planning and promoting group activities. Follow us on Facebook for up to date information.
