Get off on the right foot in 2014 with a free New Years Day walk in Vancouver, Washington, hosted by the Vancouver USA Volkssporters. Everyone is welcome to join in for an easy walk of 5, 10, or 15 kilometers (3, 6.2 and 9.6 miles).
Register and start walking at any time from 9 am until 1 pm at McMenamin's East Vancouver, 1900 NE 162nd Ave., B-107, Vancouver, Washington. If you prefer to walk with a group, join in with the Meetup group that will start walking at 9:30 am.
The walkers can choose from any of three loops, each 3 miles (5 kilometers) long through east Vancouver. Walk one or more, returning each loop to McMenamin's. The SE five km loop will mainly go through Pacific Community Park. The NW five km loop will go past nice neighborhoods and on a nature trail in a wooded park. The SW five km loop will go past many expensive and affluent homes in a quiet neighborhood.
The walk is free, with optional IVV volkssport credit for $3. Pets are welcome on leash. Strollers may have some difficulty on the NW loop.
