Get out and stretch your legs at Kal Tire Place or Greater Vernon Sports Track. It’s free and a great way to stay in shape!
Kal Tire Place
When using the facility for your walking convenience; please consider staff and other users while on the concourse. Here are a few simple guidelines to follow:
- Share the concourse: DO NOT walk 3-4 abreast. When walking with a friend, be alert to others who need to get around you and manoeuvre into single file to allow them to pass easily.
- Follow the given direction for the day. Direction arrows are posted on posts ‘C’, ‘G’ and ‘E’ for walking inside or you may walk in the lower parking lot outside.
- DO NOT walk right on the outer perimeter as the risk of collision is high. Doors open unexpectedly and no one wants to be injured.
- Use proper waste receptacles for any wrappers or empty drink containers.
- 1 Lap around the concourse = 800 feet
- 4 laps = 1 kilometre
- 7 laps = 1 mile
- 4 laps around back half parking lot = 1 kilometre
- 1 lap around building & entire back parking lot = 1 kilometre
- Management and Staff reserve the right to ask people to leave if not adhering to these guidelines
