We encourage all participants to register on-line or by mail for the Path of Hope in advance of the event. Event-day registration costs $40 for 5K walkers, survivors are still free, and children age 7-15 are $15. Make sure to register in advance to save! Event-day registration beginning at 9:00 A.M. will be available for those who were unable to register in advance.
All registrants need to check in at the Registration tent and will then proceed to the T-Shirt tent for your free t-shirt.
Be sure to pick up your bib and timer at registration/check-in in advance of your 9:30 A.M. start. The route is a 5K with an easy path underfoot. A map of the route will be available closer to the day of the event.
You follow the same route as the 5K runners. Walkers must yield the right of way to runners who are in a timed race. Please stay to the right and allow runners to pass on your left.
The route map will be available closer to event day. Ample benches will provide opportunities to rest along the route, and you can do as much or as little of this walk as you choose. Cross the finish line for the Celebration at the end of the walk.
Autumn in New England is spectacular, and sometimes a little chilly. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and clothing, and have layers and coats available, if necessary, along with sunglasses and a hat or other sun protection. You may want to bring rain gear too, as this is a rain or shine event.
If you are walking in honor or in memory of someone or as part of a team, we encourage you to show your creative support with your attire too!
This is a rain or shine event, and the event will go forward on September 29th if there is light rain in the forecast.
In the event of a severe weather forecast: thunder, lightening, heavy rain, hurricane, tropical storm, or similar with heavy winds, the Path of Hope Committee will notify event participants as to next steps.
This event is wheelchair-accessible.
We walk in honor of all newly diagnosed brain tumor patients, survivors, and caregivers and in memory of all whom we have lost, especially Martin Syndomin, whose tireless volunteer efforts helped us to create our very first Path of Hope, and Ana Rombilus Griffin whose tremendous contributions to the Path of Hope will always be remembered.
