Get ready to walk: Each fall, the New Albany Walking Classic promotes health and fitness. This walking-only race, which consists of either a 10K or a half-marathon distance, takes place on Sunday, Sept. 16 at 8 a.m.

While the adults might choose the longer distances, there is a Kids Walk for ages 6 to 12. Kids can walk a one mile course, and participants will get a free t-shirt with the $10 entry fee. Entry fees for the 10K and half-marathon vary depending on when you sign up.

Along with the Walking Classic, there will be an expo Sept. 14-15 that is open to the public and features vendors and health information. Learn more about the race or sign up at newalbanywalkingclassic.com. We hear it fills up fast!
