Register: New Albany Walking Classic


The 13th annual New Albany Walking Classic featuring a 5-mile distance will be held on Sunday, September 17, 2017 beginning at 8 am on Market Street extension in downtown New Albany, Ohio.

Organized by the New Albany Walking Club, and Healthy New Albany, the Walking Classic is the largest walking-only race in the United States drawing walkers of Olympic caliber as well as recreational walkers whose goal is to walk for health.


The New Albany Walking Classic is a component of Healthy New Albany a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to promote a culture of health for those who live and work as well as attend school in the community.

The total number of entrants for this year's event will be limited to the first 3000 who sign up. Early registration is encouraged as this event sells out early every year. We have reduced the size of the field this year to safely accommodate our participants. Because of this reduced field, we encourage early registrations as a sellout is expected well before race date.
