Eventbrite - Long Haul on the Delaware 100K Walk

Can you walk 100km in one day?
This is our longest FreeWalk ever (62.1mi)

Travel a scenic and pedestrian-friendly journey along the entire length of the historic Delaware Canal and visit all of the charming riverside towns of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Covered bridges, colonial history, photogenic landscapes, local food, and so much mileage you can't handle. Or can you?

A peaceful nature walk interrupted periodically by many historic and interesting towns, at first quaint and tiny, ultimately large post-industrial suburbs.

Getting there:
A bus ride from Newark International Airport Station to Easton will be available, as well as one from Philadelphia. Plan on a pasta dinner in town shortly before the walk.

Getting home:
Celebrate your finish on Mill Street with us. Bristol Train Station is on the Northeast Corridor, with easy access to New York, Philly, or return to Newark. Some transit options available after 50 miles.
