Walk promotes physical fitness

People will be walking for health at Running Rooms across Greater Victoria on Sunday (June 12).

The second annual Weight Watchers Walk-It Challenge is a five-kilometre walk.

It’s part of the organization’s campaign to encourage people to get fit by slowly building their physical fitness and adopting a healthier lifestyle.

The nationwide event is happening at all three Victoria Running Room locations, in Broadmead Village (Saanich), Victoria and Langford.

Running Room area manager Bill Taylor said Broadmead walkers will stroll down Royal Oak Drive, up the Lochside Trail and back, while the downtown route will go through James Bay and Beacon Hill Park.

The Langford route will go behind the store location at Millstream Village and to Thetis Lake.

Taylor said there are 70 or 80 people registered at each location.

The walk starts at 8:30 a.m.

To register, go to the Running Room’s website and click on Get Active, and then Weight Watchers- Walk It.
