Welcome to 2024, My Walking Group, we are a friendly group of single men and women aged 50 plus who come together to have fun and friendship, and at the same time improve our level of fitness by walking and biking.

Our principal aims are to: keep fit, make new friends. have fun!

We are not a dating club. We are not into competitive sport.

We meet fortnightly on a Friday for drinks and a catch-up twice a month, at the Chateau on the Park (DoubleTree by Hilton), 189 Deans Avenue, and the last Friday of the month at the RSA Papanui.

A programme of walks (and biking) and social activities is organized every Saturday and Sunday. Most walks are in and around Christchurch for 1 to 3 hours, with the occasional longer trip to the outskirts of the city, the Port Hills, or further afield. Car pooling is an option.

Other events on a regular basis include:

  • Race Day
  • Golf, Ten Pin bowling, frisbie golf
  • Pot luck dinners, dining at restaurants and cafes, picnics
  • Games and quiz evenings
  • Theatre, shows and movies
  • Occasional long weekend and longer trips throughout the year

The annual membership fee is $15.00. (Subs become due after our AGM, held in February). Once a subscription has been paid, members will receive our three-monthly Programme, with full contact details, via email. All members are invited to lead a walk or other event in the 3-monthly Programme. Some of our activities are subsidised.

Members are asked to respect the views of others and to promote a friendly attitude at all times. We welcome new members and look forward to meeting up with you on a future walk.
