YMCA of the Triangle

Header slogan


Walking and running are two popular methods of fitness in the Triangle. With our miles of greenways that criss-cross the area and mild weather, it's no surprise that many YMCA members choose walking and running as preferred forms of fitness.

Several of our YMCAs host walking and/or running clubs. These clubs are led by YMCA staff and volunteers and usually meet weekly either in the community or the YMCA for walks or runs.

We provide a pacer so no one is left behind, and welcome walkers and runners of all ages and abilities. These clubs are a great way to meet people, share fellowship and spend time outside on your fitness goals.

Walking and/or running clubs are held at the following YMCAs and are free for YMCA Members.
