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 60 minutes long, but can vary, being as long as 90 minutes.
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.
Thank you everyone, for another year of fabulous Sole Sister walking adventures! Big bouquets to our wonderful walk leaders, Susan, Kathy, Magdalena, Elaine and Eleanor. The Sole Sister walks will start up again in September, with the date and location to be announced in early September.
