EVERWALK HAS OPENED REGISTRATION for its 4th Epic event, the Liberty Walk, coursing 134 miles from Philadelphia PA to Washington DC over 7 days from August 26 to September 1, 2019.
The group has engaged buses dedicated to the walkers, available for stowing gear and cooling off at breaks after choosing a seat. Discounted rates at hotels along the course are expected to be announced in Mid-March, with a price per night range of $125-$175.
Distance options include, as usual, the (1) entire distance all 7 days, (2) full and (3) half day trippers, and (4) virtual walker. Check the registration website for fees and other details.
A Training Guide is promised but I can seem to locate it on the site just yet.
Diana and Bonnie urge interested walkers to register soon to take advantage of early bird rates and begin training to adequately prepare.
The organizers describe the course as flat and historic, possibly hot and humid. This event seems like one of the best yet. It concludes on Labor Day weekend which can be a plus for some and a deterrent for others. The virtual option may work if the dates and location make travel difficult.
Hopefully this particular epic walk motivates many to turn out and carry the movement forward. In the future, registration fees may decrease if sponsors get behind it.
RUN & MOVE HAPPY!

Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
