Missoula, Montana


According to the American Heart Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. Think it doesn’t do any good? Think again. Walking is low impact; easier on the joints than running. It is safe – with a doctor’s okay – for people with orthopedic ailments, heart conditions, and those who are more than 20% overweight. In addition, research has shown that you could gain two hours of life for each hour of regular exercise!

Missoula Walk with a Doc is for everyone interested in taking steps for a healthier lifestyle. What better way to spend your Tuesday lunch hour than on your feet making strides to improve your health?

Join your Missoula community members on a weekly 2-mile loop along the new trails at the Fort Missoula Regional Park. Go west on South Ave., past Big Sky High School.  Take a left at the round-about.  Meet us at the pavilion.  Look for blue pennants.

Each program begins with a 15-min. “Doc talk,” presented by a local physician, specialist or UM professor/researcher.  All level of abilities are welcome. No pre-registration necessary, but participants will be asked to sign a waiver, on site, prior to initial participation.
