How it works

Additional Tips and Suggestions
•  Pick a meeting spot for friends and family in advance. This will be a good frame of reference should you and the members of your team get separated. 
•  We recommend that you bring a cell phone so that you can contact those you are hoping to meet up with. There will be no announcements for “lost folks” from the stage.
•  You should wear comfortable, light clothing such as shorts and comfortable tennis shoes. If the weather forecast calls for it, bring sunglasses; sunscreen; a disposable poncho or an umbrella in case of rain; and any other personal items you might need. Color 5 Mile Rain or Shine! 
•  Teams Land: A special meeting area for those who qualify based on size of the team, deadlines apply.  All tables and chairs in Team Land will be broken down by 3 PM the day of the Walk.  Please do not leave your items unattended.  (See more about Teams Land in the Team Captain’s Kit.)
