Always be aware of your surroundings. Walkers are prohibited from wearing headphones and using mobile phones or texting devices while walking.
Always use the sidewalk when available and walk in the direction of oncoming traffic. When no sidewalk is available, walk on the left-hand side of the road, facing oncoming traffic and close to the curb.
Don't walk more than two abreast.
Watch for moving vehicles.
Always use a marked crosswalk when available.
Obey the pedestrian signal at intersections.
Watch for trains. Never try to beat an oncoming train and cross tracks only at rail crossings. Obey warning devices (lights and crossing arms).
You are fully supported from Start to Finish on the Challenge Walk MS route. From water and snacks to medical volunteers, we’ve got you covered!
Rest Stops: Rest Stops are located along the route every 1.5 to 3 miles. These fueling stations serve as breakpoints that encourage hydration, nutrition and oftentimes, medical support.
Support and Gear (SAG) Vehicles: National MS Society staff and volunteers drive official event vehicles that patrol the route to show support and ensure your safety. SAGs give rides to rest stops and other destinations along the route as needed and requested. No personal SAGs are allowed on the route.
Remember to Hydrate, Refuel and Stretch: Check out our Training Tips and Tools page to learn more on when and what to eat and drink.
