Fitness Walk

If you have completed a registration form and sent it through campus mail, you do not need to register online also.

When is the walk?

Start between 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., May 22. Finish any time before 3:30 p.m.

How do I sign up?

Complete and return the walk registration form you received via campus mail or online via this website. No sign-ups will be accepted by phone or e-mail, or on the day of the event. Deadline is May 9.

How does it work?

At the start table, you will receive your start card and a map with a designated route marked on it.  Follow the route to find the checkpoints, as there will be no clues for the checkpoints this year.  At each checkpoint, have your start card stamped.  Utilize your campus map to help find your way to each checkpoint, and ultimately back to the finish table.  Walk may include some elevation and/or steps, although every effort is taken to make the route accessible.

Where do I go to begin?

The walk starts and finishes at the walk table located in the Foyer in front of Loeb Theatre.  On May 22nd, go to the start table to receive a start card. Follow the map at your own pace; the check points will be noted on the map. Turn in your card at the finish table to receive your award.

Hints for a great walk

  • Be sure to wear sturdy, comfortable shoes.
  • The walk will take place rain or shine. Only a severe storm will cause cancellation.
  • Every reasonable effort will be taken to make the event safe and fun.
