This is our fifth annual super distance walk and our premier challenge event. We average about 60 participants with usually less than 10 going the entire distance. We're looking to do a repeat this year only bigger with more finishers.
As we have done in the past, our walk primarily follows the East Coast Greenway. And, the East Coast Greenway Alliance has promised outstanding support along the way.
This is our most diverse walk, from tranquil parks and rivers to friendly communities to industrial parks and cities - this one has it all. The walk is conveniently near rail lines which makes using mass transit a big plus. If you prefer, create your own challenge by jumping on or off the walk at various schedule points.
This year again, The Big Walk is an important segment event for our Cross-Jersey Walking Challenge encompassing most of the miles of the 100 total goal for the year. Join the challenge and walk the entire state in 2014 at your own pace for your own glory.
