Back to School and Fall Colors on UW Campus (10K Rated 1A)

Meet inside the store a few minutes early to register and be ready to walk at 4pm. This walk begins and finishes on the Burke-Gilman Trail, a former railroad right-of-way, but the beautiful campus of the University of Washington is the main attraction. Enjoy the diversity of architecture styles, the grounds and gardens, and the spectacular view of Mt. Rainier from the Drumheller Fountain and Frosh Pond. 10K Rated 1A

Volkssport Credit is $3.00.  Free participants are welcome but all must register.  Donations to support Volkssport are always welcome. 


Directions: From I-5 North or Southbound, take exit 169/NE 45th Street. Turn West onto NE 45th to Meridian Ave. N . Turn left onto Meridian and proceed downhill to 34th. Fisheries Supply faces N 34th, not Gasworks Park. Turn onto 34th for the best on-street parking. Please do not park in store lot. Metro #26, which runs from 3rd Avenue downtown, will get you to N. 35th and Wallingford Ave N., which is a couple blocks from the start.

      The way I see it, we were lucky it didn't rain for the first 1.5 hours :)

    I would like to carpool (from Bellevue) if anyone is interested :-)

      We will need to take more than one car. Get there early and we'll figure out how many drivers we need. Also, be sure to cancel your RSVP if you can't make it, so that we know how many to expect. See you there!

    I'm not sure about the walk today. Things need to be determined before 4pm today. Working hard that I can make it, I have been crossing my fingers since morning ¥

    Wow, I can't believe we still have 26 people who don't mind a long walk on a rainy day! Just a note for those who haven't been to the fisheries store before -- the entrance is on the north side of the building. (Your GPS will probably take you to the south side.) Park (free) on one of the side streets, not in the store parking lot. See you soon :)

      The weather is turning around. I feel it is going to be a great dry walk.

    Unfortunately I won't be able to make it since I have a business meeting that overlaps. Too bad as it looks like it may have turned out to be a nice day! Have a great walk.

    I forgot to put this in the original description: Free participants are welcome but all must register. Donations to support Volkssport are always welcome.

    I work just a few blocks away, so this is a very strong maybe for me depending on how work is going.
