Come join us on November 2nd for a pleasant, non-competitive walk in the Orenco Station area of Hillsboro. No pre-registration is required....just show up between 9am and 1pm and be able to complete 6K (3.7 miles) or 10K (6.2 miles) by 4pm. It's really that easy. If you are a book-carrying volkswalker, the fee is $3; if not, just come and walk for free (though donations are always welcome). Here's the important info from the event flyer:
Another successful Sumer Stroll series of evening walks. Many thanks for all those walkers who came along to enough the cool summer evenings. Please let us know what your favorite walks were and where you would like us to schedule the 2014 Summer Strolls. Thanks!
Our next-to-last Summer Stroll is the Waterhouse Boardwalk YRE on Monday, Aug 5th. The start is at 50 NW 158th Ave, Beaverton, OR--the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District facility. Meet in the Athletic Center Building toward the back of the parking lot and between the soccer field and the outdoor basketball courts. We start at 6:30pm so please arrive early enough to register before it is time to head out. Here's the description from the ava.org website:WATERHOUSE BOARDWALK: the route for this favorite walk goes through wetlands, forests, parks, neighborhoods, and the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation Center. No busy streets--just enjoy nature while walking along scenic boardwalks and barkchip trails. Restrooms at start/finish and along the walk.
Our Monday Summer Stroll for July 29th is at the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge in Sherwood. We'll have to get this one started early as closing is at dusk and dusk is moving up more and more. Let's meet by 6:00pm at the Albertsons on Hwy99 and Durham Rd (where the Cook Park walk starts)..that's 16200 SW Pacific Hwy, Tigard. Due to limited parking at the Refuge, we'll carpool if needed to the Refuge about 3 miles from there and the Sherwood Merrywalkers will be at the Refuge to handle our registration. We definitely want to be done by 8:30 on our way home. The trail is a 5K loop, which can be done 2X for 10K.
Hope that all makes sense....All are welcome, and it's free!
Join us for an evening stroll through Orenco Station and Noble Woods Park. We will meet at the New Seasons Market, 1453 NE 61st Ave, Hillsboro, OR. Head for the hallway in the store between the bakery and the meat departments. Please arrive by 6:15pm so we can all be registered and heading out at 6:30pm. This walk has both 5K (3.1 miles) and 10K (6.2 miles) routes available.
139 Walkers Walked and Walked and Walked! Glad to have everyone there. Here's pictures from the first 5K (Thanks Starr!). Will get some more posted shortly.
This week's walk is the George Rogers Park walk that includes a bit of Marylhurst University (along with the park). All are welcome! Just show up at the Albertsons Store at 11 S State St in Lake Oswego about 6:15pm or so...we'll head out on the walk at 6:30pm. This route is a really nice one! Don't miss it!
(For those who may be wondering, we walk about a 3 mile/hour pace so ususally get done between 8:30 and 9:00pm).
Great way to get out and enjoy the parks on the West Side! We will walk the Cook Park event this Monday, July 1st at 6:30pm. Please plan on arriving by 6:15 to get registered. The registration point is at the Albertson's store at 16200 Pacific (99W) Hwy, Tigard, OR. As always, these group walks are open to the public and free. Come and join us!
This week's Summer Stroll is at Tryon Creek State Park, 11321 SW Terwilliger Blvd, Portland, OR. What an awesome way to spend a summer evening in a park, in the trees, on the trails.
This walk is the Rose City Roamer's Year Round Event #921 and is rated 1B.
All are welcome. It's free (and only $3 for volkssporters who are walking for IVV/AVA Awards).
Please be there by 6:15pm to sign in, we must get underway by 6:30pm so we can get done before they close the park gates at dusk!
