Are you crazy? A 50-mile walking event in February? Maybe. But, you won't know until you try it!
Join us for our 5th annual reprise of Robert F. Kennedy's 50-Mile walk along the C&O Canal Saturday February 10, 2017 from Great Falls, Maryland to Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.
On February 9, 1963, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy walked from Great Falls, Maryland to Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. The journey was initialized by his brother, President John F. Kennedy, who had reiterated an earlier 50 mile military walking challenge of President Teddy Roosevelt.
Now, we've recreated the same walk at the same place and roughly the same time each year.
All participants have access to support services including return transportation, food, water, campfires and backup support rides, if needed. There is no separate charges for shuttles back to the start on Saturday night and anyone parking at the Clarion in Harpers Ferry will be able to take a early morning bus to the start at the Old Anglers Inn at no extra cost.
The event centers around and ends at the best hotel in the area - the Clarion Harpers Ferry. We have secured a block of rooms for Friday and Saturday night which we are offering at a special rate - but the offer is limited to 25 rooms and the pricing is only good until January 1, 2018.
