The Commute is a new Bay Area walking challenge for the ambitious. On June 9th, 2012, walkers will join together from all over the Bay and beyond and gather at Circle of Palms Plaza in downtown San Jose, exchange some high-fives, and beginthe commute to San Francisco by foot.
This event encourages you to challenge your physical and mental limits, while offering you a completely different experience of the peninsula.
"You can make it; We'll help you.
Starting Saturday June 9th, participants will spend one full day walking along Route 82 through the communities that tens of thousands of Bay Area residents drive past in the rush of their daily lives. We expect it to take up to 24 hours for participants to make the journey. Volunteers with food, drink, and first aid will be stationed at regular intervals along the route to help ensure that walkers are fully supported.
We want to help you complete the walk, and have a great experience while you're at it. Here's how we will help you meet the challenge:
