Shorewalkers will hold its annual Great Saunter—a 32-mile walk around Manhattan’s rim. The pace is steady, but not fast. Most of the route is fairly flat. We keep to the waterside as much as possible. We’ll go rain or shine and many of us will make it round, regardless of the weather. We walk through more than twenty parks and promenades and touch dozens of communities and cultures. Along the way are many points from which you can easily join the group or drop off and catch public transportation.
Registration: Please check and renew your membership prior to registering for The Great Saunter. Please save time by registering in advance for this event.
