Stairway Walks Day 2014

On Saturday, February 8, 2014, from 10:00am to 12:00pm, lace up your shoes, grab a friend, and join Feet First for the Second Annual Stairway Walks Day. One of our signature events of the year, Stairway Walks Day features eighteen simultaneous walks across the region, which celebrate the legacy of more than 650 publicly accessible stairways.

 

Feet First Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors will lead 450 participants along several of the region’s most impressive stairways, collectively traversing up and down more than 100,000 steps. The stairway routes featured on Stairway Walks Day are from Cathy and Jake Jaramillo’s book Seattle Stairway Walks: An Up-and-Down Guide to City Neighborhoods.

 

Last year every stairway walk was filled up in advance of the event. To ensure your space in Stairway Walks Day, register today.

 

Urban explorers are invited to join one of eighteen guided neighborhood walks in Bellevue, Burien, and the following Seattle neighborhoods: Ravenna, Fremont, Maple Leaf, University District, Madrona, Eastlake, Queen Anne, Magnolia, Capitol Hill, West Seattle, Downtown, Mount Baker, Rainier Beach, and Seward Park.

 

Feet First Executive Director Lisa Quinn believes, “Stairways provide a great way to exercise, improve health, and get to know a neighborhood. Stairway Walks Day encourages people to explore the Puget Sound Region’s unique and beautiful neighborhoods by walking.”
