Volunteers can direct you to shorter loops if requested. Shorter loops will also be marked in chalk.  We suggest dressing in layers, and to wear sturdy shoes, such as sneakers. There is a chance of rain so you may want to get umbrellas/rain jackets.  Refreshments and restroom facilities will be provided.

Walk Preparedness
The Walk is on rain or shine. Dress accordingly. 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.
Apply and reapply sunscreen often.
There will be a light snack, consisting of water, and energy bar and fruit. Please eat breakfast and bring any additional food you may need.
See you all there!
