Special Notes For:
CELTIC COLOURS WALKS 9-16 Oct 2004 & TAILGATE PICNICS, 5K & 10K Events
The Cape Breton Island Hoppers Volkssport Club, in partnership with Celtic Colours International Festival, is pleased to present "Celtic Colours Walks", a series of sanctioned IVV guided walks through many of Cape Breton's most beautiful hiking trails and towns.
ALL WALK EVENTS ARE IVV SANCTIONED AND ALL YRE's & GW EVENTS ARE SUBJECT TO NORMAL IVV RULES.
All of our walks were selected for the expected fall foliage and as leisurely as possible, however some new walkers maybe intimidated by 10Kms, therefore I have advertised on the Celtic Colours Website that we will sponsor 5K walks as well and we will not hold Celtic Colour visitors to our lofty goals of two 10K walks each day.
Please remember you are not obligated to do all of these walks, come out and enjoy yourself, you know your own limitations; Walk for Fun, Fitness and Friendship!
