Richmond’s Walk to Nature event on Saturday will happen despite the threat of rain, although a downpour would nix the walking part, organizers said Friday.
The free annual event is meant to connect Richmond families to nearby regional parks and encourage physical activity.
If the rain is light, organizers said, the walk will happen. Residents will either meet at Richmond Civic Center at 9 a.m. or at Ohio Avenue and S. 6th Street at 9:30 a.m. and will walk to Miller Knox Regional Park in Point Richmond. The distance from Civic Center is 3.6 miles, while the distance from 6th and Ohio is 2.2 miles.
Walkers will be provided with free water bottles, a Chipotle lunch, Zumba classes and other activities, and buses will return them to their starting points.
If the rain comes down hard, as forecasts predict, the event will be begin two hours later, at 11 a.m., inside the Nevin Community Center at 589 Nevin Ave.
“The same park activities and Chipotle lunch will be happening inside with stage performances, live music, the Get Your Summer On! Campaign, free t-shirts, water bottles, and so much more,” according to a Friday post on the Walk to Nature Facebook page. “If the weather clears in the afternoon, we’ll go outdoors to Zumba and welcome back the sun.”
Pets are welcome for the walk, but not for the indoors event, organizers said.
For more information or if you would like to volunteer, call (510) 232-3032.
