City Walk 2012

I'm excited to announce that on Sunday morning, at about 4:30am, I will be departing on my questing marathon known as the City Walk. A brief history of how and why I started doing it can be found in a 2006 post just before I make my first complete circumnavigation.

The score stands at Saskatoon 3 (1994, 2005, 2007) - Mike 2 (2006 and 2008). I'm out to even the score.

As usual, you are all welcome to attend part or all of the marathon. I'll have my cell phone with me, so feel free to give me a call to meet up. Here is a map of Saskatoon with two previous trips on it, so you can have an idea of the route.

Possible Itinerary:*
4:30am -- departure from Clarence Ave S (counterclockwise this year)
12-12:30 -- river crossing sans bridge (a first! Could save me 8-10km)
12:30 -- Picnic lunch on Spadina (hopefully... it will be near here)
4:30pm -- North of YXE
7pm -- 11th St Esso
10pm -- Finish

*later times show increasing approximation ;)
