Join Us for Two Great Walks
Our fifth anniversary for both the Spring Ahead (March 22) and Great Canal Walk (April 11) is coming soon! The Spring Ahead Walk is a comfortable 12-miler starting in Trenton and ending in Princeton. The Great Canal Walk starts again in Trenton and ends in New Brunswick for 40 miles, almost all of which is on the Delaware & Raritan Canal and along the East Coast Greenway.
The first event, Spring Ahead Walk, 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. That allows you to start a little later in the day April 11 and still cover 28 miles, having done the previous 12 in March - for a total of 40 miles!
For the Great Canal Walk on April 11 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 this walk represents the first segment in the Cross-Jersey Challenge which offers a challenge of walking across the entire state of New Jersey in 3 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 19) and the Big Walk (May 10) to add to your challenge mileage. Be sure to sign up and record your mileage if you want to participate in the challenge.
