Get Fit with a Fall 5K: November 18

November 8, 2011, Volume 58, No. 11

Cooler temperatures have arrived, making it the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors. So join the Penn Walking Program for a 5K walk (3.1 miles) around campus on Friday, November 18.

Walkers of all levels are encouraged to participate. We’ll even have volunteer walkers placed throughout the group to help keep a steady pace and make sure no one is left behind. The walk will likely take an hour or less of your time (depending on your pace), making it an ideal workout for your lunch break.

If you’re already a member of the Penn Walking Program, you’re encouraged to wear your “I’m a Penn Walker” t-shirt and bring your pedometer. You’ll also be able to register for the program and receive a free t-shirt, welcome packet, and pedometer.

So throw on some sneakers and start walking! For more details and to register, visit the Human Resources online course catalog at www.hr.upenn.edu/coursecatalog and choose “Health Promotions” from the Browse by Category menu.
