Extended Astro Loop (Walks #23, 26, 27)

I know this is very short notice, but hopefully the many new members and regular members will be able to attend this walk.

This walk will combine almost all the staircases from Walks #23, #26 and #27 from Fleming's Secret Stairs book. We may also see the bears that Fleming mentions in Walk #23.

This is a tough walk and not for beginners.

Starbucks is in the Ralphs Shopping Center at the corner of Fletcher and Glendale Blvd.

Free parking either on Glendale Blvd (meters aren't enforced on Sun) or behind the Ralphs. Your car may get towed if you park in the Ralph's parking lot.

Pace: Please be honest about your conditioning level.

Walk will take about 2 hours.

We will go at a fast workout pace.

You should only be a few steps behind the front of the group.

We will not wait for people at the top of staircases to catch up.

If you aren't able to keep up with the group, you are on your own to get back to the starting point.

Reminders:

No crashers- Please sign up for this event. Please do not just show up.

RSVP limits are set, because I don't want a huge group on these walks. So, if you RSVP only for yourself, don't bring a guest.

Please keep your RSVP updated and current. Remember the 3 no shows and you're out policy.

If you make it a habit of signing up and then always canceling your RSVP, I will remove your RSVP to open a spot for another member who will attend our events.

There usually are no restrooms along these walks. Restrooms are usually only available at the starting point of the walks.

Always bring plenty of water.

Always wear running/tennis shoes. Open toed shoes are not a good idea for these stairs walks.

Any questions or concerns please email me, David.
