-From walking the Grand Prix course the week before the big race, to community walks, Walk Long Beach hosts and organizes an ever-growing range of walking events. One exciting new offering is a “epic” walk, which is an organized walk of more than 5 miles. The first epic walk is in the planning stages, so be sure to check back for updates.
Held in late March, this is the local version of National Walk to School Day. The build up to the event includes a student “It’s Cool to Walk to School” poster contest and distribution of “Get Out of Jail Free” cards the week before. Walk to School week includes welcome tables at elementary and K-8 schools across the city to promote safely walking to school both as quality time for parent/grandparents and the kids, as well as a wellness activity.
