Amelia Island Runners and Road Runners Club present Weight Watchers Walk-It Day 5K, proceeds benefit Warrior Vacations.
On June 6, 2010, the Amelia Island Runners has partnered with the Road Runners Club of America to present the Weight Watchers Walk-It Day 5K. This walk-it (or run-it) day is a custom designed journey highlighting walking as a great way to get moving, burn calories and tone muscle. After the walk, participants will learn from a fitness expert how they can plan their own fitness program. Proceeds from this event will fund vacations for our troops returning from Iraq and Afganistan through Warrior Vacations.
The Sunday morning walk/run route is entirely inside Fort Clinch State Park and the walk starts at 7:30 AM, at the fort. If you have never been to Fort Clinch, you should know that it takes several minutes to get from the park’s entrance at 2500 Atlantic Avenue, to the fort’s parking lot. The park is noted for it’s canopy of oaks, abundance of wildlife and natural beauty.
