LET'S WALK/RUN!

Come enjoy Spring outdoors with a beautiful view of Lake Michigan.  We will start our walk/run from the NE corner of the parking lot and walk/run along the lake looping back around to our starting point.  This walk and/or run is a total of 3 miles.  It should take about 45min to an hour to complete depending on your speed.  We will extend a 10 minute grace period for those late arrivals.  After 9:40am, you can catch up with us on the trail.  You will enjoy the view so bring your camera.  As a courtesy to everyone, please do not bring your dog on the walk.  This walk/run is geared towards the comfort, enjoyment and gathering of all the members.  Thank you for understanding!


 

Special Note: Please meet your host (Wayne) at the 13 / 5 mile sign located approximately 100 yards south of the 39th Street Beach parking lot. Wayne will be there by 8:30 am warming up and doing calisthenics.

 

Be sure to bring water and a towel. Bug spray and sunscreen are also useful.

    I had a great time! This was my first event. I met some great people. It turned out that I already knew the organizer (Wayne). I'm looking forward to more meetups. I was also recruited to organize my own meetup (Tracey!), and I'm excited about it.

    Good morning, all. Apparently there is a running event happening now (must be the day to walk/run) I am told Lake Shore Drive is blocked off and they are not allowing folks to turn into the 39th St parking lot. An alternative spot to park can be Lake Park and Pershing, plenty of spots available and free and you can walk over the bridge to 39th parking lot. Thanks
