Walk 10k every Monday from the Bayview Thriftway (meet in delli section) in Olympia mostly along sidewalks with some board walks and trails. The walk leader varies the route from week to week. Everyone is welcome, and there is no cost. Walkers should expect to walk the 6.2 miles in about 2 hours. Pets are welcome, but this walk is not suitable for strollers or wheelchairs. IVV credit available and walks are generally rated 1A.
We are a group of friendly people doing weekly 10k (6.2 mile) walks all around the south sound. We walk for fitness, so these are not strolls. Expect to finish walks within 2 1/2 hours, depending on stops. All walks are American Volkssport Association (AVA) sanctioned. Everyone is welcome to join us. All walks are free, or you can choose to pay for AVA credit stamps. Find out more about the AVA at www.esva.org or www.ava.org.
Just show up and be ready to walk at the posted time. We need to register to each walk at the start location, so allow for that. It's important to join the group. Otherwise, you won't get reminders or changes and cancellations.
There are Wednesday morning walks every Wednesday. Wintertime you'll see some cancellations that are weather dependent. You may also see some Thursdays -- late afternoons into evening as days grow longer. There will be weekend walks with a group walk start time when the Puyallup volkssport club -- Daffodil Valley Volkssport Association is putting on a traditional, staffed event.
Most all walks are dog friendly (with leash and cleanup, of course,) unless it's through a wildlife area. We'll say in the directions.
