2. meet at 9:30 am at Tim's (in order to watch the wedding first and then walk) on Saturday
3. meet at 8:30 am at the Running Room on Queen St on Sunday (free parking on Queen).

Please sign in so that others know your plans.

Folks training for Niagara are scheduled to do 16 km on Saturday and 10 km twice during the week.
Those training for Norway are scheduled to do 18 km on Saturday; 8 km & 10 km during the week.
Training folks love company on their longer walks - please join them. It is very helpful.
Hikers will do 24 km on Sunday in Hockley Valley....very beautiful; very hilly.

Monday walk - meet at Tim's 2 at 9:00 am - long weekend - what better way to start your Monday?
