Join us for our tenth year! Our premier challenge event. Walk up to 50 miles in one day!

This year, we will take the ferry across the Hudson below Exchange Place.

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. We walk from Metropark station in Iselin, NJ to Penn Station, NYC.

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:

  • Segment 1 - Metropark to Cranford - 6:00 a.m. to 9:30-10:30 a.m. (12 miles)
  • Segment 2 - Cranford to Newark - 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (16 miles)
  • Segment 3 - Newark to NYC Penn Station - 5:30 - 11:00 (13 / 20 miles)

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.
