Sunday Morning Walk - Kinnaird Ravine & Little Italy
Sunday Afternoon Walk - Kinnaird Ravine & Little Italy Where: Kinnaird Ravine 111th Ave & 82nd Street Edmonton , AB T5H 1L7 We will meet @ 9:15AM, and start the walk @ 9:30 AM How to find us: We will meet at the top of the ravine by the children's playground @ the corner of 111th Ave & 82nd St. There is residential parking across from the park. If there are events at the Stadium or Northlands, there will be a parking ban in which case we switch the location for the walk to Mill Creek or Laurier. We will walk down into the ravine on the park trail to the river, and then from there several different loop trips are possible, leading back into the ravine and up to where we started. The walk is at most approximately 9.2 Km and typically takes 2 hours. We stop 3 or 4 times to ensure all are present. If you concerned about being left behind or unable to keep up, please let the leader and other coordinators know. Guests and dogs are welcome. All dogs must be leashed and sociable. We walk trails that are shared with other walkers, runners, cyclists, and dogs. Not only are participants responsible for taking precautions for their own safety but are also expected to set good examples. Our walks are in the river valley so a reasonable level of fitness is required considering the terrain and who else uses the trails. We don't let the weather or trail conditions hold us back. So come join us ... and be sure to dress for the weather. Be sure to wear suitable footwear for the season. Sneakers are not suitable at any time of the year, least of all when there is ice, snow or mud on the trial. Hiking boots are recommended and "spikes" or "grippers" are essential for winter and early spring hiking. During warmer weather occasionally there are muddy patches on the trail. A water bottle is also recommended. This walk does not have a cafe on route, so after the walk we will visit one of the coffee shops in "Little Italy"on 95th Street at 109th Avenue, to recharge our batteries. Our favorite is Zocalo's because it has good treats and a greenhouse sitting area. Join us for fitness, fellowship - and fun!

What we're about

Meet other Fit and Active men & women. Get together for hikes, x-country skiing, skating, cycling, lawn bowling, dancing or whatever we enjoy doing to stay Fit and Active! Most of our events involve walking on trails in the city so when you join us, you will be asked to answer 5 questions before you get approved. Please don't be intimidated by the questions; we just want to get to know you and we want you to get to know us. And if you signing up for non-walking activity, thanks for being patient and for joining us!

Fit & Active 50 + or - is made possible by organisers who volunteer their own time and by the membership dues paid by you. When you join our meetup, you are asked to pay the yearly membership dues of $10. You can pay by giving $10 cash to the organizer at any event. When you pay your membership dues, you can attend all of the Fit & Active 50 + or - events. "Membership Dues" is the term we use because Meetup.com also uses the same term... but, dues are a donation to help keep things going (to pay Meetup.com, to have a yearly picnic, and left over money goes to charity). A donation is not mandatory and you are always welcome to be Fit & Active with us. Join us and if you are satisfied, make a yearly donation.
