Lots of us take part in fun runs (well not me, I couldn’t run if someone was chasing me anymore), but how about fun walks?

The City of Spokane’s Parks and Recreation Department is starting a new event. It’s a 5.5 mile loop-walk, called ‘Bridge Walk,’ that crosses over 17 historic bridges in the heart of Spokane.

Bridgewalk is Saturday, June 06 at 9:30 am. It’s $17 for adults, $10 for children 5-16, and children under 4 are free.

Bridge Walk will be an annual event, and each year will have a ‘featured’ bridge. Bridge Walk 2009 begins at the Monroe Street Bridge, which is this year’s featured bridge. From there you’ll make your way through Riverfront Park , at your own pace, and end back in the Park at the Riverfront Fountain.

Here are the bridges you’ll cover: Monroe Street Bridge, Post Street Bridge, North Fork Bridge N, North Fork Bridge S, Wood Bridge by YMCA 1, Wood Bridge by YMCA 2, Wood Bridge by YMCA 3, Wood Bridge by YMCA 4, Wood Bridge by YMCA 5, Howard Concrete Bridge S, Howard Street Foot Bridge, Howard Concrete Bridge N, Washington Bridge N, Wood Bridge E of Carousel, King Cole Foot Bridge, Wood Bridge by Inn at Park, Don Kardong Foot Bridge
