We will Stride as a group from the Victoria General Parking Lot (1276 South Park St) and head directly through the parking lot and exit onto South Park St.
Then veer to the left onto the sidewalk on South Park St and continue straight staying on the righthand side of the street and continue striding straight on South Park St until reaching Inglis St.
Once reaching Inglis St, we will turn right and stroll up enjoying the beautiful morning walk as we proceed to Robie St. When we have reached Robie St, it is time to turn right and celebrate that it is 1/2 way! Continue straight on Robie St striding until University Ave.
Almost back! At University Ave, turn right again (we won't cross the street) and stay straight until reaching the corner of Morris St and South Park St.
From there, we can see the finish! Turn left back on to South Park St and stride up to the entrance of the VG parking lot (be careful of cars turning into the lot), back into VG Parking lot and back to the start for our finishers medal and high fives all around!!
Have no worries if you are unsure of the route, there will be some friendly volunteers along the way to help guide you to make sure you are striding the right way.
