The Sonoma County Historical Society is sponsoring its 12th Annual Jeff Tobes Memorial History Walk Saturday, June 4th  2016 for history and physical fitness buffs. Check out our previous walks at: The last walk in 2015 had 106 strong and wonderful walkers.  The purpose of the walk is threefold: to increase health through walking, to learn about Sonoma Valley’s unique history, and to promote Sonoma County.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner, healthy snacks, support vehicle, bus, timely stretches, interesting people and sights will be provided.  The support vehicle will meet us every so often where we will stretch, get resupplied and shed or get clothing.

We will meet in the town of Sonoma at the Depot Museum parking lot.  The exact route will be determined by the advance team in the upcoming months, and posted on our website.  Rest assured the route will be safe and fairly flat most of the way.

Since no cry babies or whiners are allowed, one must be prepared physically, so shorter walks of 2, 5, 10, and/or 15 miles should be taken beforehand.  People will have to learn about their own body needs, such as what type of shoes and socks to wear, and, to reduce or eliminate redness and blisters should they wear two pairs of socks or Vaseline or moleskin.  Please spread the word by copying and distributing flyers from our website, and telling friends and co-workers.
