GIRLS & GUYS WALK

This is a low-pressure environment for VanCity Girls and Guys looking to meet new people, make friends and do something healthy for themselves.

UPCOMING EVENTS

NO SIGN UP REQUIRED

We want women to be able to come when it works for them, and to make this a no-pressure setup. All you have to do is show up and have fun. That said, we do occasionally have special events — such as happy hour or themed walks. You can sign up for those by adding yourself to our email list or directly on Instagram.

FAQ

Our walking group is always 100% free. That said, we may occasionally host a complimentary event that does come with a fee attached. Attendance is never obligatory.

Nope.

We’re all about gentle movement and inclusivity — and we deliberately walk in areas that are welcoming for a wide range of ability levels. So, if you use a mobility aid or need to take it easy for any other reason, please feel free to join us! This isn’t a competition, and no one gets left behind.

No. We aim to create a safe space for all body types, all fitness levels, all ages, and as many ability levels as possible.

We prioritize gentle movement, self care, and connection over getting any kind of “workout.” If you use a mobility aid, you are also very welcome to join in on the fun!

We’re all about inclusivity, and this isn’t a speed-walking group.

Here’s the shortlist:

  • Weather-proof clothes (rain proof, obviously)
  • Good walking shoes (or the best you have on hand)
  • Sunscreen, hat and sunglasses (when sunny)
  • A warm and respectful attitude that’s ready to connect and make friends

We’d also love it if you brought your friend, mom, sister, girlfriend, baby, grandma, or people friendly dog!

Nope. We want women to be able to come when it works for them, and to make this a no-pressure setup. All you have to do is show up and have fun.

That said, we do occasionally have post-walk events — such as happy hour or sit-down meals together. Stay tuned for future events!

Occasionally, we will have events after our walk or on other days. You will have to sign up for these events so we can ensure we have enough space for everyone.

For event announcements and other news about the group, sign up for our newsletter or check out our Instagram.

Nope. Come whenever you feel like it. If you need to take off part way through the walk, we won’t be offended. Promise! We’re just glad you showed up.
