Starting and Finishing

on Tue, 12/06/2016 - 17:10

Official Beginning: The 50-Mile Kennedy Walk begins at the C&O Canal Parking lot @ Anglers Inn, 10790 MacArthur Blvd​, Potomac, MD (across from the Anglers Inn). Reports at the time showed Robert F. Kennedy beginning at the Anglers Inn. You can park here or get dropped off. Permit slip for each car may be required We will fill you in on the details. Plan on arriving at 3:30 for briefing, handouts, and registration. We expect to begin walking at 4:00 a.m.

Other Beginning or Ending Points: Because the walk takes place on the C&O towpath there are limited points of access.

My first 100K or the value of training

Here's one walker's opinion on walking long distance events, including the 50-Mile Kennedy Walk 2013. Practice and conditioning are the key to a successful outcome, but results may vary...

The first time I heard about the Sierra Club One-Day-Hike (ODH) was in March of 2012 when I bumped into the organizer Mike Darzi on the Northwest Branch trail near Silver Spring, MD. In one minute Mike was able to convince me to try one of the ODH events. With relatively short training on top of my already decent shape I finished the 50K in good time.
