5K, 10K, and half marathon walk training with Seattle Parks

If you’re over 50, and you’ve been putting off that New Year’s resolution to start exercising more, here’s your chance. Seattle Parks and Recreation is kicking off a new season of training for those interested in getting in shape for a 5K, 10K or half marathon walk. Seattle Parks and Recreation’s Lifelong Recreation Sound Steps is offering a kick-off training event in North Seattle on Wednesday, February 1 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Greenwood Senior Center (525 N. 85th St.). The event is open to all, but the training is specially designed for those, “50 and better.”

After the kick-off event, the real training gets started on Saturday, February 4 at 9 a.m.

The training is free, and volunteers will lead groups from Ballard Senior Center (5429 32nd Ave. NW), Jefferson Community Center (3801 Beacon Ave S.) and Ravenna Eckstein Community Center (6535 Ravenna Ave. NE).
