Head to WWW.EVERWALK.COM/EVENTS to register for our Philadelphia to Washington DC EPIC Walk on August 26-September 1, and to see other upcoming walking events around the nation!
The Liberty Epic will again cover 134 miles but, rather than walk point to point, we will Day One cover a city tour of the history-rich sites of our nation’s first capitol, Philadelphia, and Day Seven make it a tour of the majestic features of Washington, DC.
The five interim days from Wilmington, Delaware, to the outskirts of DC, will in fact have us follow a direct route, with our Campfire Chats of inspiration at the end of long days.
Yes, we are aware the last week of August along that corridor can be hot and humid. We have contingency plans, in the event of truly uncomfortable temperatures, such as starting that day at dawn and finishing before the afternoon sizzles.
A big improvement this time: We will have dedicated buses with us the entire way. You can establish your seat, stow your gear, hop on for an air-conditioned break at lunch.
The terrain of this route is basically flat. You’ll find our EPIC four-month Training Guide on our site. Start early, put in the miles, get your gear thoroughly tested—shoes, socks, carry pack, weather prep.
As always, we have multiple distance options. – EPIC Walker- Entire way, 7 Days, approx. 20 Miles a day – Day Tripper- Walk a single day or multiple single days. You will check-in on site, the day you have registered for, and receive reg info and swag. – Half Tripper- Walk a half day, starting at lunch, and finish with the group, approx. 10 Miles – Virtual Walker- Walk with us virtually from your neighborhood or treadmill, and we will support you via Facebook LIVE sessions.
*Day Trippers + Half Trippers, each day’s meeting location will be released 30-60 Days before the event.
Hotels will be published by mid-March (price range of $125-$175 per night). We are currently negotiating group EverWalk rates. As for airfare, Labor Day weekend out of DC currently quite reasonable. Obviously, the longer you wait, those could escalate.
Celebration Events: -We will be hosting a registration event on the evening of Sunday August 25th in Philadelphia where you will receive your registration documents and swag bag. -There will be a celebration dinner on the evening of Saturday August 31st
