We are so excited to offer the Walk in-person for 2021! We have missed seeing everyone and we anticipate that the time will be right to gather on the starting line on September 19th for the largest walking-only race in North America.
As in the previous 16 Walking Classic events, we will motivate you to participate by providing unparalleled swag. Every registrant will receive a specially designed, fully sublimated long sleeve event shirt (in contrast to a shirt that is screen printed). Along with a Walking Classic inspired keepsake medal, our giveaways will be a remembrance for years to come.
We are keeping our options open! We are limiting our participation to 1500 people. Anyone that would rather participate virtually will just need to register as a virtual walker - and we'll mail your swag to you!
