Join the 61st Annual Langley Walk on May 7th

From the 54th Annual Langley Walk, which started at Timms Community Centre.

One of the great Langley traditions is the Langley Walk. Pete Swensson, who was Langley Township’s first Recreation Director, started the walk in 1963. Back then, it was 35 kilometres running from Aldergrove Park to Fort Langley ending in City Park.

Today, the walk has a 5km and 10km course and rotates around Langley City and Township.

This year’s event starts at Douglas Park on Sunday, May 7th. The event starts at 12:30 pm with a warm-up, and the walk officially starts at 1 pm.

All people will receive a commemorative crest for participating in the walk. Some people have all 60 current crests, and collecting the crest has become a tradition!

There are also awards for the oldest walker and the school, organization, and family with the most walkers.

Please check out Langley City’s website for more information, including registering or volunteering.
