Striders’ 3-Day walk 2017: Save the Date for May 23, 24, 25

This is a date shift from prior years. Instead of walking in late July, we’re moving to the cooler month of May to avoid July’s afternoon heat. May should be a little more comfortable for our 10-mile jaunts.

We’ve begun the planning process for the 3-Day route and will send out information as soon as available in the New Year.

Striders’ 3-Day walk 2016:  Eastside Stride

Over 55 Striders participated on one or more days of our 3-day adventure on the Eastside, walking through Bellevue, Kirkland, Medina, and Beaux Arts.

Great weather was on our side, and 27 Striders completed all three days, a total of 30 miles. For this, they received an official Strider pin!

Walking makes you happy, as shown by the facial expressions of these 3-day finalists!
