Join Us for Two Great Walks
Both the Spring Ahead (March 20) and Great Canal Walk (April 9) are coming soon! The Spring Ahead Walk is a comfortable 12-miler starting in Trenton and ending in Princeton. The Great Canal Walk this year will start officially in New Brunswick for 28 miles. In total, we'll cover the same 40 miles we've been doing for the last 6 years but in two events. For those not familiar with the course, it's almost all on the Delaware & Raritan Canal towpath and which happens to be a major leg of the East Coast Greenway.
The first event, Spring Ahead Walk (Sunday March 20, 2016), is a popular one, as we shake out our winter blues and get moving again. Many who walk this event will start the Great Canal Walk a few weeks later where they left off in Princeton for a total of 40 miles!
AfterWalk Re-Fueling – for 2016 - we are planning a final stop at the Timulty's Pub 361 George St., a couple blocs from the train station. This has been our traditional ending place to re-fuel. Dutch treat. But everyone is welcome.
For the Great Canal Walk on April 9 we are once again fortunate to have excellent support provided by the East Coast Greenway, Eastern Mountain Sports and Blue Ridge Mountain Sports. This event always draws an interesting and enthusiastic group of walkers for this inspriational walk along a great piece of Jersey beauty and history.
Don't forget these 2 walks represents the first segment in the Cross-Jersey Challenge which offers a challenge of walking across the entire state of New Jersey now in 4 separate events. While you can walk this part of the trail any time to qualify for the Cross-Jersey Challenge, these two events make it very convenient and are a great start for the year. If you walked, or even missed these first two walks, you have the beTween Walk (April 16) and the Big Walk (May 21) to add to your challenge mileage. Be sure to sign up and record your mileage if you want to participate in the challenge.
