Spirited Walkers

Thank you for your inquiry about the Spirited Walkers marathon/half marathon training group. We walk together on Saturdays at 9 a.m. from Run Hub, 515 High Street in Eugene. We walk rain or shine, so be prepared for rainy weather.

Coach Kay Porter sends out training schedules for beginner and intermediate walkers. You can choose what weekly mileage is best for you. We also meet from 7 to 8 p.m. on the third Monday of each month February through April for a sit down meeting with information on yoga for walkers, walking form and preparing for the half marathon, etc. That is the only “class room” part. We only walk together once a week; the rest of the time you walk on your own or with other friends.

And as a gift to you and the community, once you pay your fee for this year ($175 for the 8-month training group), you may walk with us for three subsequent years, with no additional fee. A great bargain.

If you wish to join the group, contact Coach Kay Porter at kayporter1@comcast.net or call 541 342-6875.
