Itinerary:

PLEASE NOTE THE DESTINATION CHANGE FROM SWC TO MILL CREEK RAVINE!!

**Please note:
- This will be a moderately paced walk of ~4.5km/hr.
- This event will be weather dependent, please check the EOC calendar and your email for any updates.
- To find me, I’ll be wearing a royal blue baseball cap and stood next to a blue Hyundai.

About this walk: ~5-10km depending on the temperature
We will meet at the parking lot for the Mill Creek Ravine accessed via 95A Street, north of Whyte Avenue (west side of the Mill Creek Bridge).

We will head south along Mill Creek Ravine, and continue as far as we can go towards the southern end of the Ravine trails. We will then have a quick break before heading back north.

*IF weather isn't too cold with the wind chill, we will head past the parking lot towards Conners Hill. We can take a different route back, as there are a variety of different trails through the Ravine, and will decide this at the time.

Just to let you know that there are a few hills on this walk and will be on paved and gravel paths.

-----
**RE: COVID-19 PROTOCOLS: We will practice being socially distanced (6 feet / 2 meters apart) while participating on this event and step off the trail / path briefly to let others pass safely.

Additional requirements:
1. Create social space.
• Avoid skin-to-skin contact such as hugs, handshakes, or high-fives - just share a friendly wave and 'hello'.
• Blow your nose, cough, sneeze, or clear your airway at least 2m away from others.
• Wear a mask in public places to help limit the risk of spread to others if you will be within 2m of people.
**The government has indicated that masks may help. Therefore, we are leaving it to the discretion of participants to choose whether you'd like to wear masks.

2. Are you feeling unwell?
If you have a cough or flu-like symptoms, stay home and consider getting yourself tested by calling 8-1-1.
