Austin YRE Summer Sunrise Walk on June 20th

The Colorado River Walkers will be hosting an Austin YRE Summer Sunrise event this coming Saturday, June 20th. (The first day of summer!) Walkers can choose to walk any of our three Austin Year Round Events.

The Start Point is the Extended Stay America hotel located at 507 South First Street in Austin.  Restrooms are available, and there is no charge for parking if you provide the hotel with your license plate number. CRW members will be outside the hotel from 7:00 am until 10:00 am to register walkers, hand out walk directions/maps and pre-stamp books.  The fee is $3.00 per walk.

For all the details on this Summer Sunrise event, please see
