NOTE: Here's the 2017 Guide for the Big Walk This walk is from Metropark station, Iselin, NJ to Penn Station, NYC.
This is our eighth annual super distance walk and our premier challenge event. We average about 50 participants with usually less than 10 going the entire distance. We're looking to do a repeat this year only bigger with more finishers. The event is FREE, open to everyone and fully supported.
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.
Here are the 3 major segments of the walk. We suggest if you want to walk only part of the 50 mile total, join us that day roughly according to the scheduled time we expect to be there:
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 2017 at your own pace for your own glory.
