2019 Hosted Walking Events

Hosted Walking Events are normally held on weekends or special holidays/celebrations.  These walks will have club members at the start, about midway, and finish of the course to help you get started and complete it.  The event will have a start time normally allowing several hours in which you can start and adequate time for you to finish.  Events are not competitive and times are not kept.  In most hosted walking events, the trail will be marked with colored arrows and ribbons designating where the walk goes.  A map and written directions will also be available.  Swims, bikes and other sports will be similar to the walking events when they are held.  For an extra challenge and variety during the summer months, we add several Hosted Walks that are Guided Wednesday Group Walks.
