      Mirna, unfortunately, we only accept payments in advance. This will prevent too many no-shows or last-minute cancellations. When you RSVP for the event, Meetup will send you a confirmation email, and your name will be added to the list of people attending on this page. Your photo and your name on this page is all you need to prove that you have paid. Thanks

    Hi there. How long do you anticipate it will take us to walk the 10k? Thank you!

    • Walter

      We will walk at a moderate pace and take several breaks for sightseeing, snacks, etc. Without breaks, it would take about 3 hours, but because of the breaks I expect that the walk will be finished around 2 PM (4 hours) and be back to T.O. around 2:30 PM

    Hi Walter, i tried to register for this event, but why it again required me to pay $5?

    May 3, 2013

    • Walter

      Hi Jean, the $5 is a deposit required to RSVP, but you will get it back at the Meetup, when you arrive. This will prevent too many no-shows, as I have experienced in previous events. Learn more HERE:­
