Traditional Volkswalk 5K/10K Celebrate Labor Day on Capitol Hill in Seattle

Join us in a 5K or 10K walk rated 1A.

In the Middle Ages society was divided into those who prayed (Orare), those who fought (Pugnare), and those who worked (Laborare). In honor of Labor day we will substitute walking (Ambulare) for the fighting as we walk Capitol Hill and pass by the churches of many denominations that distinguish the hilltop. The route is paved and generally flat. There will be an award patch depicting the Chapel of St Ignatius on the campus; award and credit will be $9. Credit walkers $3; free walkers must register and carry a start card.  Donations are always welcome to support Volkssport in our state.

    Sorry, my walking buddy got sick and we did not make it, and I did not have the opportunity to change RSVP in time. Hope you all had a good walk.

    I think that the University Services Building is listed in Google Maps as Seattle University Bookstore? Near the East Marion Street and 12th Ave intersection?

      There will be the standard large orange signs as you near the start point.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
