"Ease on Down the Road" Commemorative Walk
It’s time to “ease on down the road” to commemorate the 41st. anniversary of “The Wiz” movie release. This movie has been a cult classic in the African-American community, since 1978. It’s a remake of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” and stars some of our favorite legends like Diana Ross (as Dorothy), Michael Jackson (as Scarecrow), Nipsey Russell (as Tin Man), and Ted Ross (as Cowardly Lion).
Southeast Trekkers, a local GirlTrek team, is hosting a free 4-mile commemorative walk on October 26, 2019, from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., on the Multipurpose Trail at Blacklick Woods Metro Park, 6975 E. Livingston Ave (Reynoldsburg). Come join us as we “follow the yellow brick road”. You just never know what experiences await you on the trail. All fitness levels are welcome to participate. No one will be left behind. Water and snacks will be provided after the walk in the start/finish area, which will be near the fitness station across from Ash Grove.
Registration is required at Eventbrite.com and limited to 50 participants. A registrant can request no more than 2 RSVP tickets for this event. Please join the wait list, if RSVP tickets sell out. We will do our best to accommodate more participants.
Ladies and gentlemen, this sounds like the perfect “excuse” to focus on fun and fitness and to dress up as your favorite "The Wiz" movie character. Will it be as Dorothy in her silver slippers? Well, sneakers in this case. What about as the Cowardly Lion? There are good and bad witches too: Evilean, Glinda, and Miss One. And don’t forget The Wiz, Tin Man, crows, munchkins and the like. You are free to participate without a costume – of course. Prizes will be awarded to the best adult and child costumes.
GirlTrek members are encouraged to wear GirlTrek gear.
Free parking is available in the lot near the Ash Grove area and the lot near the Meadows Picnic area. Cars parked on the road or grass are subject to be towed or ticketed.
Pets are not allowed at this event.
Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering behind the scenes.
