Strap on your walking shoes and join the Sole Sisters walking group. This program is offered most Wednesdays (Not during the Christmas break or July and August) at various locations around the Oceanside area and is intended for women 50+, but all ages are welcome.
This is not a power walking group, but the group does walk at a moderate pace. There is a leader at the front and a leader at the back. No one is left on their own.
Time: Wednesdays, September to June
Meet at 9:45am. The walk is from 10:00-11:30am, depending on the trail.
Most walks are about 70 minutes long, but can vary, being as long as 90 minutes.
Cost: $10.00 yearly Sole Sister donation/ Toonie for guest walkers
You will be asked to sign a waiver at the first walk you attend.
Please be sure to check here on Wednesday mornings for a cancellation, or a change in location, if the weather seems uncertain.

Thank you for reading the information below!
1. We would like each person to keep their name and emergency contact in a pocket and if possible wear a name tag. This can be as simple as a piece of masking tape with your name on it. With so many new people, this will help the leaders identify you if you are injured or unwell.
2. Fast walkers MUST stay in contact with the front leader. If you happen to get ahead, stop and wait, or turn back to the leader. the leader should ALWAYS be at the front of the group. If you are not willing to do this, we will not be able to count you in as part of the walk, due to safety issues.
3. It is important that you do not leave from a walk until you have checked in with the leader, so no one is left behind.
Sole Sisters Walks Cancelled for Now! In discussion with our dedicated walk leaders, and ACRA Board Chair, about the seriousness of the Covid-19 virus, ACRA has made the decision to cancel all of our programs at this unsettled time. This includes our much loved Sole Sisters Walking program. Like all of the difficult decisions that people are making right now, safety, not only for you, but for our most vulnerable members in the community, has to be given top priority. We all have to be socially responsible and know that you will respect and support our decision. Please continue to walk and stay active. Wishing you and your loved ones all good health at this time.
*** Please note that to join the Sole Sisters' program this year, there will be a one time yearly donation of $10.00, collected at the first walk you attend. Our year runs from September to June. (Guest walkers will be asked to donate a toonie.)This money will help ACRA to continue to offer affordable programs for youth. Thank you for your support!
