Can anyone walk the beTween Walk 12 miles?

Yes, the walk is open to any individual. Keep in mind that this is not a race and the main group of walkers expect to finish in 4-4.5 hours. This assumes being able to walk at a fairly brisk pace, with some rest and curiosity stops along the way. That represents an average of about 3 mph. A fairly fast pace for an individual comfortable with walking is 4 mph, but very few people can maintain that pace for long. Advance groups may not wait for walkers that cannot stay with the pace. Chances are you will meet walkers with a variety of experience and skill to meet your objectives.
To accommodate various skills and fitness levels, participating walkers can meet up with the walk at various designated points along the route. There are alternative suggested spots where you might consider joining in or tailing off. We will be posting a schedule of times where we anticipate the group will be passing various locations so you can plan ahead. You might want to consider setting a shorter walk objective of, say, 1 mile, 3 miles, or 5 miles. It will be the responsibility of the walker to find transportation back to their home or starting point. The route is designed to promote the use of public transportation, such as NJ Transit trains, to assist you in getting to the event and back home.
