Urban Pole Walking – Wed mornings at 7:30 and Sunday afternoons at 1:00

Stay active and meet some new friends! Join the Strathcona Pole Walking Group

•Wednesdays @ 7:30 AM (on-going)
•Sundays @ 1:00 PM (ends on April 16th unless a new leader is found*)

On Wednesday mornings at 7:30 AM, meet Melanie Kidder and on Sunday afternoons at 1:00 PM meet Mildred Thill at the Strathcona Community League Hall (south door, by the rink) then head out for an energizing pole walk through our friendly neighborhood and the majestic Mill Creek.

All fitness levels are welcome so dust off the walking shoes and dress for the weather in layers because you will get warm once we get moving. A good walking shoe is required. We will be on sidewalks and river valley paths. Bring a strap on water bottle like runners use if you like, since your hands will be full. Also, feel free to bring a few dollars for a beverage as there will likely be a coffee shop along the way.

Walks are between 30-60 minutes. Several sets of poles are available for use or bring your own.

Membership (from any community league) required. SCCL memberships will be available to purchase.

 

*If you are interested in leading a walking group on Sunday afternoons (or possibly another time), email Hall@StrathconaCommunity.ca. A quick training session will be provided.

 

COST:  free
