How long does it take to walk?

Depending on your fitness, the weather, congestion and ground cover, most walkers clip along at between 4-5 km/hour. So the shorter walk should take 60-90 minutes and the longer walk around 2-3 hours.

Can people on my team walk different distances?

Definitely! Everyone who joins a team selects their own route distance during registration. You can have people walking multiple distances on the same team.

Can I run the route instead of walking?

Due to the risk of ice, snow, and wet weather, the numbers of walkers involved, and the participation of children, seniors, and service animals in our event, participants are not permitted to run our routes. For those who would prefer to run, they may do so under their own oversight either earlier in the day or on another day, knowing that they would be running without our volunteer management and would not be covered under our insurance.

Runners can then participate on WALK Day with us by walking the route with their friends, families and neighbours.
