Does it cost anything to participate in the walk?

No. This walking event is open to the general public and is organized by the FreeWalkers, a free, social network of individuals interested in long distance walking and related walking events. We are supported by the ECGA and other organizations with volunteers for the sole purpose of providing a rewarding physical experience to the participants and to build awareness of pro-pedestrian issues. Walkers should be prepared by bringing their own food and supplies or be prepared to pay for them along the way. We will benefit from the support staff of the East Coast Greenway, which will assist with rides if necessary and some basic supplies.

We ask that you register for the event at our Eventbrite registration page. You do not have to be a member of FreeWalkers.org although we encourage you to join. membership is FREE and most of our events are free. Once registered for the event you can be sure to get the latest event information and will be able to set their own walking goals. After the walk, we survey participants and post results for registered walkers and and tally with others for the total miles walked that day. Donations may be solicited for non-profit organizations that either support our events or represent a local charity.

We thank our generous sponsors for the event for their support - East Coast Greway Alliance and Eastern Mountain Sports
