Why not say farewell to 2013 or welcome 2014 with a long walk? (And you could do both, of course).

A New Year’s Eve 5-kilometer route will wind through the holiday lights of West Seattle’s Admiral neighborhood, and feature views of the city. A 10-kilometer route will take walkers down to Alki and feature the lights on and around Puget Sound, Elliott Bay and downtown Seattle. (Flashlights will be helpful).

On New Year’s Day, 5K walkers can wander through quiet neighborhoods while 10K walkers will traverse along the shoreline.

The events are hosted by the Emerald City Wanderers and St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church.

The New Year’s Eve walk starts anytime between 4 and 7 p.m. The New Year’s Day walk starts between 9 a.m. and noon. Both walks are free and begin at the church at 3050 California Ave. S.W. Hot soup will be available.
