What we'll do
This is an open invitation to Slow and Steady members to join us on Tuesday evenings for a 5-8 km urban walk exploring the Okotoks Trail system. The riverside trails are beautiful and deer are frequently sighted during our evening walks. The walks start at 6:30 pm in the summer. We will wait up to 5 minutes at the meet up location in case you get stuck in traffic.
Please note that we all walk at different paces, however we strive to stay together and enjoy each others company. If you wish to walk very quickly this walk may not be for you. We love to stop for "Kodak" moments periodically as the ever changing weather/seasons provide memorable moments.
Event host will pick the route each week dependent on weather and trail conditions. In the past we have taken different routes (i.e. walked the River trails; through town; around the dog park and Drake Landing pond etc.....)
Distance: approx. 5-8 km on asphalt or dirt trails
Elevation Gain: minimal
Physical Difficulty: Good walking / trekking shoes are recommended. Street shoes (i.e. flats / any boot with a heel) will not be acceptable.
