9 a.m. Saturday Fitness Walk
This cornerstone of our training is a great place to get started race walking. We begin at 9 a.m. with instruction for new walkers and warm-up drills. Then we walk at a brisk pace for 45 minutes and end with cool-down stretches and club announcements. Meet us across from the east entrance of the Lincoln Park Zoo on Cannon Drive about a quarter of a mile south of Fullerton.
