New Albany Walking Classic - 2023

We are pleased to announce the addition of a 5K (3.1 miles) division to accompany our 10K distance that has been the standard since our inception in 2005. We have added this shorter option based upon the numerous requests we have received over the years, thus providing an opportunity for greater family participation as well as for those who feel the shorter distance would be more accommodating. As always, participants will be able to walk for health and/or competition at either distance.
