The Emerald City Wanderers
Seattle, Washington

We are a walking club which hosts non-competitive walking events for fun, fitness, and friendship.  We’re a Seattle-based chapter of America’s Walking Club, and we’re known as the “Holiday Club” because we sponsor organized walking events on or near holidays – New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Easter, Fourth of July, Labor Day, and Halloween.   We also host many self-guided year-round-walks in Seattle.

 

Join us for our next event!
