The Y Walkers

Eastside Family Y

Walking can often be a solitary athletic pursuit, but at the Y, you can join those of us who want to enjoy the conversation, motivation, and encouragement of others. You can even train for events as a team! So lace up your sneakers and hit the trails together.

We’ll be walking indoors in inclement weather, and outside the Y when weather permits. Those who join will receive notification about Saturday morning walks around the area, and team walks like Highmark Walk For A Healthy Community. Walkers of all fitness levels are welcome! Non-members are welcome (registration with photo ID required), except for water walking.

Tuesdays and Thursdays 8:00 am – 9:00 am, meet at Eastside Y

Water Walkers: Tuesdays and Thursdays 2:00pm – 3:00pm in the small pool

Saturdays  – on hiatus due to weather
