The forecast for Saturday is 65 degrees F. I received confirmation to participate. Seniors meet at 10 at the estacion saludable. The run starts at 11. They will provide water. This is my first 3k run ever.

Has anyone else signed up?
 
I meant walk, not run. I wouldn't have lasted for half of one lap around the lake. The event began with warmup exercises lead by a marathon runner on stage. After grabbing a bottle of water we headed to the starting line. Horacio Larreta came to greet the participants. The walk was two laps around the lake, which took about an hour. There were several seniors using canes, and they finished. It was inspiring to see the huge number of seniors turn out on an absolutely beautiful winter day in Rosedal. Then the group stretched together for the finale. Certificates were given out to all participants and an apple. Staff were stationed every ten meters along the route in case anyone needed assistance. The event was well planned.
