Riveredge Silent Sports: Hike in the River
August 2, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Riveredge Silent Sports is a series of programs focused on outdoor exercise and adventure. (“Silent” refers to the non-motorized recreation we enjoy, not the silence of the participants!)
Beat the August heat with a splash in the river! For this session, we will meet at the West Parking Lot of Riveredge Nature Center to be closer to the river. Wearing our old sneakers, we will hike down the river using the current for resistance. Strength training and cardio happen simultaneously in this water workout! Who knows? Maybe our laughter and splashing will wake up a great blue heron, bald eagle, or river otter! (After all, the name Silent Sports applies to the non-motorized recreation we enjoy, not the silence of the group members!)
Meet at the Riveredge West Parking Lot. Old running or hiking shoes with firm, rubber soles work really well for this activity. Aqua shoes and aqua socks are not recommended!
Fee: $5 for non-members, free for members
