The Metro Walkers of Atlanta is a walkers’ ONLY Jeff Galloway training program. We have been walking consistently as a group since September of 2007. Our group focuses on walking as a means of improving overall fitness. We meet every Saturday morning in the metro-Atlanta area. We have three training groups – beginner, intermediate and advanced. While several group members train for half-marathons year round and other group members progress to the Galloway run/walk programs, the majority of our members strive to improve health through consistent walking. Each year we have two sessions – Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter. During the Spring/Summer Session (February to August) we primarily train towards the Peachtree 10k which is held every year on the 4th of July in Atlanta. Our Fall/Winter Session runs from September to mid-February. During this session, we primarily train towards the National Breast Cancer Half Marathon with Donna held every year around the second week of February in Jacksonville, Florida.
This Saturday, October 20, we will meet at at 7:30 at:
Stone Mountain Visitor Center
891 Main St, Stone Mountain, GA 30083
(We park in the Village, not inside the Park.)
DIRECTIONS TO STONE MOUNTAIN:
If you are coming from Midtown or Buckhead, take Ponce de Leon / US 78 past Fernbank Museum. As you continue East on US 78, Ponce de Leon becomes Scott Blvd and then Stone Mountain Highway.
[Alternatively, take I-285 to the East Side of Atlanta and take Exit 39B for US 78 East (Snellville and Athens)/Stone Mountain Freeway/Highway/Parkway.]
As you drive on US 78 East (outside I-285), get into the far Right lane after you pass the Mountain Industrial exit.
Look for signs for Village of Stone Mountain/Highway 10.
Take Exit 5 for Highway 10 – Village of Stone Mountain to the Right.
Stay in that Right Lane.
Take the next Exit - East Ponce de Leon /Village of Stone Mountain – to the Right.
At the end of the exit ramp, turn Left on East Ponce de Leon toward the Village.
East Ponce de Leon becomes Main Street at the First Traffic Light (at James B. Rivers Drive).
NOTE: WHEN YOU ARE AT THIS INTERSECTION, THE BREAKFAST SPOT IS ON THE FAR LEFT CORNER.
After 3 more blocks on Main Street you will see the old train Depot on the right and then, after a cross street, the Visitor Center (a train caboose!) and then the police station are on your LEFT.
Park in the parking lot between the Visitor Center and the police station.
