Shorter loops will also be marked in chalk.  We suggest dressing in layers, and to wear sturdy shoes, such as sneakers.  Refreshments and restroom facilities will be provided.

The Walk is on rain or shine. Dress in layers as Walk mornings tend to be cool and warm up quickly.
Wear sturdy, reliable shoes. Flip flops and sandals are not recommended.
