Join the walk!
Over ten days of ~10 mile walks, the September 2022 Walk Around Philadelphia will send small groups to explore the city's perimeter on foot, followed by a special in-person celebration on Saturday October 1. You are invited to join for a half day, whole day, or multiple segments.
PLEASE REGISTER INDIVDUALLY for EACH segment that you plan to attend.
Register for this segment:
You're signing up to walk on Saturday September 10 at 9am, clockwise from 61st St & Baltimore Ave towards Wissahickon Station.*
Each segment is estimated to take roughly 10-12 miles and 5-6hrs. Your mileage may vary depending on choices made by your group, and there will be options to depart / get picked up along the way if necessary. Using public transportation to access departure and end locations is highly recommended.
Segment note: The tail end of this segment involves crossing the Schuylkill River. There are multiple ways to do this, but the one closest to the perimeter is not the most pedestrian friendly. Options for the crossing will be discussed at the beginning of the day.
Once registered, you will receive some additional resources including a packing list, segment maps, and list of optional exit points if you don't think you'll walk the full distance with the group.
*NOTE: We plan for each start time to have groups heading both clockwise & counterclockwise. In the event of insufficient registration, the groups may combine and your direction and end-point may change. Please keep an eye out for emails the night before for any last minute updates / changes.
Registration fees & contributions:
Tickets are sliding scale: walk registration fees help cover administrative and logistical costs associated with facilitating the walk. Additional contributions are most welcome; they assist in the continued development of the project and efforts to make it more accessible to others.
Free registrations & stipends:
If you'd like to join the walk and finances are a barrier, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can acommodate some free registrations and have a limited number of stipends available to help cover costs such as transportation, supplies, childcare or time off from work.
Since its 4-person artist residency origins in 2016, Walk Around Philadelphia has become a pilgrimage experience where hundreds (ranging in age from 12 to 94) have set out to explore the city's perimeter.
