The Sonoma County Historical Society is sponsoring its 13th Annual Jeff Tobes Memorial History Walk Saturday, April 1st, 2017 for history and physical fitness buffs. 

The last walk in 2016 had 76 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 at the Healdsburg Ave. Park and Ride at the Highway 101 exit. 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.


Tentative Itinerary is:
5:30 a.m.        - Meet at park and ride at 101 and Healdsburg Ave. Check in.
6:00                 - Leave
7:30                 - Breakfast at Big John’s Market
8:00                 - Resume walking
9:15                Salvation Army at Lytton Springs
12:45               - Lunch - Hoffman Park
1:30                 - Resume walking
2:40                 Italian Swiss Colony
6:00                 - Dinner in Coverdale


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.
