Langley City and Township are encouraging people to take part in the longstanding Langley Walk tradition, even as the walk goes virtual this year due to physical distancing requirements.
Organizers are encouraging people to take to the treadmill, do laps around the yard, or walk their neighbourhood or local park trails to participate in the 58th Annual Langley Walk.
Since 1963, the Langley Walk has been hosted in various communities and been presented by the Township of Langley and Langley City to encourage residents to get active and enjoy the great outdoors.
The longstanding tradition, which was scheduled to be held in Langley City this year, is going virtual in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Residents of the Township and City can take part by walking five kilometres while keeping safe and practicing social distancing.
Participants can walk on their own or with members of their own household to complete the 5K, either in one go, or broken up into several sessions.
Residents have until Sunday, May 31 to complete the Walk, and the first 1,000 Walkers to email email@example.com with their contact information, mailing address, and participant list will be sent a 2020 Langley Walk commemorative crest in the mail.
Those who finish their 5K are encouraged to capture the moment and share their stroll by taking a Virtual Langley Walk selfie and posting it on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter using #LangleyWalk.
When walking in your neighbourhood, remember to practice two metres of physical distancing from others.
