WHAT TO BRING
This is a Nordic walk so bring your telescoping hiking/walking poles with rubber booties as we will be on asphalt and concrete most of the time. At the start Sue will teach the Urban Poling technique for Nordic walking. Sue was recently certified as an Urban Poling Instructor. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-fuF1pUaws
We will have some demonstration poles and booties available. If your poles don’t have rubber booties check online for your pole manufacturer details.
Bring water and snacks. Rain gear and/or sunscreen.
There are washrooms near the baseball diamonds.
