Does it cost anything to participate in the walk?

Answer: 

Yes, this walk requires at least registering for basic support which is $50 this year. Our policy is normally to provide "free" walks where we can. However, due to the difficult conditions of this event we are requiring a fee to help us cover our cost. 

While the event is open to ALL walkers. Everyone should be prepared to be somewhat independent. We will provide basic support water, snacks, fruit, lunch campfires (where possible), and power bars. We also include free celebration party food and drink at end. We also provide portage of one bag forward to the end of the walk and "stop and hop" service where you can ride forward to other stops or drop out and ride to the end. However, most importantly, you should have a back-up resource to help you if you run into a problem. This website merely provides information about the planned walk. 

Our three support plans are:

  • Basic support: $50 per person (required) - sag supplies, baggage portage, ride backup, t-shirt, celebration party in Harpers Ferry
  • Basic support Plus - $65 per person - All basic support plue ride back to start.
  • Travel Package One - $100 per person (includes basic support + Pick up + Friday night lodging at historic lockhouse + Fri dinner  + Saturday ride back to start)
  • Travel Package Two - $150 per person (includes basic support + Pick up + Friday & Saturday night lodging at historic lockhouse + Fri dinner  + Saturday ride back to start + Sunday ride )

NOTE: If you choose basic support and need a ride back on Saturday night, space will be limited, you will be on lower priority, and there is no guarantee we can acccomodate you. There is an additional cost of $25 per person for requests made the day of the event.
