The Ocean City Walking Club, which was formed last summer, returns this year and invites everybody to join weekly walks on the Boardwalk on Friday mornings.

People of all ages and fitness levels are encouraged to meet outside the Ocean City Music Pier at 9 a.m. each Friday to walk the length of the Boardwalk.

The Ocean City Healthy Living Advisory Council created the group as a way for people to get healthy and meet new friends. The first walk of the season was held Friday, May 10.

The Ocean City Boardwalk is 2.45 miles long and the round trip is (4.9 miles). Walks may take about 90 minutes, but participants are welcome to stop at any point along the route.

Starting on June 14, the start time of the weekly walks will move to 8 a.m. The Healthy Living Advisory Council asks everybody to grab a coffee or water and “don’t forget to bring your smile.”
