Monday Morning Walks. 

Hike for Health 2021

This popular series of Health Walks on Monday mornings is coming to end.  The last walk is next week,  Monday, June 28th at 10:30am.  We will meet in the Cumberland Mountain State Park behind the restaurant at the boat launch for the kayaks and canoes. (Next to the wooden bridge.)

CMC/Covenant will be providing a boxed lunch after the hike. If you would like lunch and you have not already given your name to Naiad Kuhlman please call (931) 459-7019 so they know how many lunches to provide.

Exercise is vital to your overall health. The American Heart Association recommends fitting in at least 150 minutes of heart-pumping physical activity each week. Being physically active is important to prevent heart disease and stroke, which are the nation’s top causes of death. Studies also show that exercise goes a long way in helping cancer patients stay strong through treatments and ward off future cancer reoccurrence.

Hike for Health is a weekly one-mile hiking series that can help you achieve a half marathon in just 13 weeks!

From the beginner to the avid hiker, everyone is welcome to attend. Hike for Health encourages you to take steps towards a healthier you with group hiking opportunities.

When hiking, it’s important to be prepared. Look to the weather forecast and dress accordingly with comfortable clothing and shoes, take water and a light snack, and wear sunscreen. One may also want to wear insect repellent.

These are “all weather” hikes. This means that the leader will always show up at the trail-head regardless of the weather forecast. If there is a consensus of the hikers at 10:30am that the weather is too bad for an enjoyable hike then it will be cancelled.

Thirteen weekly  one-mile hikes

Each guided hike begins at 10:30 a.m., and all are approximately one mile.

For more information, please call (931) 459-7019.
