(Registration will be open 6 days before the event.)
Meet at about 10:00 AM in front of Broadview Subway Station. We will begin the walk at 10:10 sharp. Today's walk will be lead by Mick and Patsy.
There are no public washrooms at the start/finish, however we can stop at Todmorden Mills (about 2 Km) for a washroom break, if needed. We will have a longer washroom/coffee break at The Brickworks (about 4 Km).
Since there are no washrooms at the start/finish, please keep in mind that there is a public washroom in the Bloor Station, which may be convenient for some who are using the subway to get to or from the walk. Also, there is a washroom at Withrow Park, about 1.2 Km from the start/finish.
We will walk to The Brickworks, going up Broadview, and returning to the start via Bloor. The distance will be about 8 Km, with an optional additional 2 Km loop through St James Cemetery.
The route is entirely on city streets or paved paths, so please wear shoes or boots appropriate for the weather.
The closest public transit is Broadview Station. Vehicle parking is available in several lots along the Danforth, including a Green P lot off Erindale Avenue, just north and east of Broadview Station.
There is currently no scheduled subway outage for Sunday, but please check Subway service (ttc.ca) in case there are any changes.
