The NB2MP10 - The beTween Walk is the next segment (12.3 miles) from New Brunswick to Metropark, and the 50-mile "NJ2NY50 - The Big Walk" in mid- May. There is no cost or fees for participating and the public is invited to in all three events and the challenge itself. Visit for details and to register for the challenge.
