TULSA, Oklahoma - The Tulsa Walking Club is taking advantage of a rare sequential time and date to promote fitness at LaFortune Park. The public is invited to lace up and show up at the Thornton Family YMCA Saturday for the "10-11-12-13-14 Time To Walk" national walking event.

Register at the YMCA at 51st and Fulton at 9:45 a.m. and get ready to walk at 10:11 a.m. on 12-13-14. 

Tulsa Walking Club president Teresa Arnold said everyone is welcome at the free event. Arnold joined the club in 2001 and said she's lost weight and gained good friends.

"Our motto is 'fun, fitness and friendship,' and we have some of each at every walk," she said. "It's not a race - everyone walks at their own pace, and there's always someone to talk to."

The Tulsa Walking Club is part of the American Volksport Association which organized A Time To Walk. Seventy clubs in 39 states will be on the trail at the same time.

Tulsa's group will walk around LaFortune Park trails which are about 3 miles if you go the distance.
