THIS IS A CITY OF SHORELINE EVENT THAT I AM POSTING FOR MEMBERS INTEREST AND PARTICIPATION.
Does your workout need a challenge? For the entire month of May, you can participate in the MILLION STEP CHALLENGE by logging the number of laps you do around the path at Paramount School Park.
Dogs allowed on leash. Scoop law in effect.
Did you know?
The loop at Paramount School Park is 1/3 mile long and takes approximately 725 steps to complete one lap.
THIS IS A NO HOST EVENT, MEANING NOBODY IS IN CHARGE AND YOU ARE FREE TO COME AND GO. I DO HOPE THAT YOU WILL MAKE AN EFFORT TO MEET UP WITH SOMEBODY FROM OUR GROUP AS THAT MAKES WALKING MUCH MORE ENJOYABLE. I WILL NOT BE AT THIS EVENT BUT I WILL POST TWICE WEEKLY WALKS AT THIS PARK FOR THE MONTH OF MAY, SOME OF WHICH I WILL BE AT. I WOULD LIKE THOSE PARTICIPATING TO LOG THEIR LAPS SO WE CAN GET SOME IDEA OF HOW SUCCESSFUL OUR GROUP IS.
Saturday, May 3
9:00 a.m., Free
Paramount School Park Picnic Shelter, 155th Street and 8th Avenue NE
To kick off the challenge, the community is invited to an opening event on Saturday, May 3, from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. A warm up and inaugural lap will be led by Crossfit Hailstorm with energizing snacks from Earth and Fire Kitchen, both local businesses. The Ridgecrest Neighborhood is sponsoring the event and asks people to bring a donation of a non-perishable food (preferably healthy) for Hopelink, Shoreline’s Food Bank.
How does it work?
The Million Step Challenge will take place during the whole month of May. Come out to Paramount School Park (155th Street & 8th Avenue NE) and walk, run, or skate as many laps as you can around the loop path.
