We are an informal group of walkers dedicated to walking for fitness and pleasure, training to achieve our individual goals and enjoying the companionship and inspiration of like-minded women (and a few good men).

We are serious about our walking but equally serious about laughing, talking and eating breakfast. Many of us started as JeansMarines and carry on Jean’s tradition of caring for and encouraging each other.

We are inclusive and welcome the occasional runner but our emphasis is on walking – whether strictly for pleasure or to better your half or full marathon time. We are all ages, all sizes and all degrees of fitness but we share the belief, that with time, training and tenacity, we can walk the distance, step by step.

And a big thank you to our Sponsor – Harbord House!

Where We Meet

We walk at varying paces for varying distances according to our training plans, the weather, and personal goals.


We usually meet the ‘mailbox’ at Rowanwood and Cluny in Rosedale @6:30pm. BUT during COVID we are meeting at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery  @ 4pm.

In the spring/summer for a few weeks, we do hill training at Sherwood Park (Sherwood Ave, east of Mt. Pleasant).  Check the TPW Calendar  for the most up to date details on where we are.


We meet at 8:30am @ Mt Pleasant Cemetery, just inside the Yonge Street gates (November to early May) – even during COVID! If it’s really icy or very very cold, we could walk in other places like Yorkdale mall or along the downtown PATH (if they were open), or stay safe at home, and maybe even find a YouTube yoga video to do.

We usually meet at 7:00am and 8:00am at the Grenadier Restaurant in High Park (Early May to late October) – In 2021 we are STILL not officially walking from High Park as parking is closed, as is the Grenadier Restaurant! 

Some of us will be walking the Pan Am Path summer 2021, in segments. Check the TPW Calendar if you want to join us.

Check the TPW Calendar for this week’s distances.

I honestly couldn’t think of a thing to write about this afternoon.  Yet, the blog needs a post!  I turned back to the posts of previous Mays, looking for inspiration. In 2017, we walked along the lake at this time of year and someone broke her elbow in a fall and DROVE HER CAR home …

Important Information re Parking at the Cemetery AND NEW TIMES!

What a beautiful week! All the flowering trees are showing off their blooms and the birds are hanging around, waiting to be admired. For the record, the redbuds, apple blossoms, and a Cooper’s hawk made me slow down even more than usual today in the cemetery. Speaking of the cemetery, we have been asked by …
