Be Inspired: Walk in the New Albany Classic

The New Albany Walking Classic, invites you to experience the fulfillment and camaraderie that comes from participating in what Walk Magazine calls America’s best walking event. The event takes place at 8 am, Sunday, September 16 in the city of New Albany.

Sign up now to be guaranteed a spot at the starting line and choose between the 10k (6.2 miles) and half marathon (13.1 miles). Both courses are certified by the USA Track & Field. 

Every wonder just how serious a walker can get? Consider this. The 6th annual walk will include a number of walkers who have qualified to compete in this year’s Olympic trials. And some of these walkers will average a seven-minute per mile pace – as fast as the top 5 percent of finishers in some running events.

This year, the Classic has borrowed the “Be Inspired” tagline of one of its sponsors, the City of New Albany, as its theme to help promote the many benefits of walking, including the latest findings that it improves brain power. The event’s title sponsor is The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

Innovate New Albany, the city’s incubator for technology startups, entrepreneurs and small businesses, features 16,000 square feet of space within the New Albany Business Park’s Signature Office Building, 8000 Walton Parkway.
