Street walkers

There’s a new urban adventure club in Reno. You’ve heard of free climbers and even urban jungle adventurers like free runners—but have you ever heard of street walkers? No, not that kind.

Street walking is a new fitness craze sweeping cities across the country and the world. The idea is simple—just walk through a city, crisscrossing the streets. It’s a hit with fitness enthusiasts young and old. The only rule for this at-your-own-pace workout sensation: Do everything legally. Obey traffic signals. Walk against traffic on sidewalks where present—and cross at designated crosswalks.

“It’s thrilling in a city like Reno,” said visiting Seattle street walking enthusiast Jason Smith. “I’ve tried base jumping, big wave surfing and bull riding. It’s that kind of thrill.”
