Looking for something fun this Memorial Day? Come with your family and friends to Waterfront Park to enjoy a free Healthy Hometown event at this year’s Subway Fresh Fit Hike, Bike and Paddle!
More than 12,000 people participate in this twice yearly event, with activities beginning on the Great Lawn in Waterfront Park starting at 8AM. Fitness demonstrations hosted by professional instructors leading Yoga, Tia Chi, Zumba and Pickle Ball will be followed by the Hike, Bike or Paddle events. The Hike offers three routes from the Great Lawn to the Big Four Bridge, with options to walk the bridge to Jeffersonville, return to the Great Lawn or continue to the Louisville Community Boathouse, with all but the bridge option dog friendly; or the 15 mile closed course Bike ride to the historic Olmsted designed Shawnee Park and back; or get your Paddle on in the Ohio River, starting at the Harbor Lawn in Waterfront Park. If you don’t own a canoe or Kayak you can rent one by going online and reserving at Louisville Kayak Company.
Whether you and your family are novice or expert, the Subway Fresh Fit Hike Bike and Paddle offers something for all skill levels.
Free T-shirts available while supplies last to the first 2500 participants. Additional giveaways can be found by visiting one of the 50 booths, including gift cards from Subway. You can also register for a Kayak and bicycle giveaway courtesy of Neil Huffman Subaru or register on-line for a kayak giveaway through Academy Sports.
Water stops are located in Waterfront Park, Shawnee Park and at the Big 4 Bridge. Bring your own water bottles for this Go Green Event and fill them at the Louisville Water Company Fill Stations with cold Louisville Pure Tap.
None of this would be possible without our amazing partners at Subway, Coca-Cola, Norton Healthcare, Neil Huffman Subaru, Academy Sports + Outdoors, Yoga East.
