Walking Program Fall 2021 (September - November Session)

Walking Program Fall 2021

The City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department offers a program to build stamina, endurance and maintain cardio vascular health.   

The Walking Program/0-60 is designed to get you walking up to 60 minutes in 12 weeks! It begins with 20 minute walks, three times a week, and works up to 60 minutes. Distance is not the priority, movement is. No racing or competition, just a focus on health and well-being.   

If you are already an active walker, this is a great way to meet new people, walk and socialize! Participants walk at their own pace for a set time. Distance will be tracked every day to monitor individual improvement. All participants will meet at Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center, 304 W. Bell Ave.

Walks take place from 8 – 9 a.m., Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center, September 1 through November 24. 

Registration is ongoing, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center.  

The fee is $12 per month per walker and includes tracking of progress for the 12 weeks of the program.   

For more information, call 575/541-2455.
