Do you wish summer would never end? The FreeWalkers have found a way to push the boundaries of that season by declaring September 22 this year to be our last summer day and one that is sure to be a great one for a final summer-like walk. Last year's 2011 event was voted the overall favorite FreeWalker event of the year!
The bay2ocean30 is a unique long distance walk along the interesting and beautiful New Jersey coast. We start at Keyport in the bay area and work out way east to Sandy Hook then south along the ocean all the way down to Asbury Park for a total of nearly 30 miles - all in one day.
This year we will be supporting a great local charity called Elijah's Promise, a Central New Jersey food pantry service that's so much more! Eastern Mountain Sports - our event sponsor is providing drawing prizes for several lucky winners and a deluxe rest stop in Long Branch.
