I’m not sure I believe it myself, but RVA’s weather people say fall is around the corner. Like we might see cooler, crisper conditions early next week. I don’t know about you, but that makes me want to get outside and stay there. If you feel similarly, and you want an excuse to get your family outside, too, check out the the Hike4Kids, the annual hike-athon fundraiser from our good friends at the Blue Sky Fund, on Oct. 28th.
Last year over 200 participants chose three different distances: 5-, 10-, and 18-milers, all on trails in the James River Park System, started/finished at Legend Brewery, and generally had a blast. This year, the concept is the same but some of the details have changed.
For 2017 you can challenge yourself with the family-friendly 3-mile loop, the tougher 8-miler, or the endurance-distance 14-mile loop. All hikes start and end at the Virginia War Memorial. The after party features local food trucks and beer from Vasen Brewing.
