Our June activity is a 5k walk along Alki Beach in West Seattle. (That’s a smidge over 3 miles.) This path has been laid out by dedicated Volkswalk-ers!* It’s the easiest sort there is, being flat and paved. So, strollers, wheelchairs, pets, (and even non-Mensans!) are all encouraged. After meeting up for route maps and a simple registration, we’ll drive to the nearby starting point.

*”Volkswalk?” Registration?

What began as the Volksmarsch movement of fitness walking, around 60 years ago, has evolved into “volkssport,” with many walks in Washington, and a few bicycle rides. All of these events are casual opportunities for non-competitive fitness and fun. Internationally, they include swimming, canoeing, snowshoeing and even cross-country skiing. Just in America, there are over 2,500 events annually. (That’s a lot of sports for a lot of “Volks!”) Many choose to have organizations record their participation, and you can do that at our walk for $4. Otherwise, it’s free.

RSVP to Program Chair, Larissa, and we’ll know to wait for you. (Text preferred.)

Mensa of Western Washington’s monthly gatherings are held on the Third Saturday of the month and open to the public. Time and location will vary to make accommodations for speaker availability and member travel time.
