There are 2 course options, both are wheelchair accessible:

  • The 5K Walk (3.1 miles) that takes you on a scenic route around the tidal basin, past the Jefferson Memorial and loops back around to the Walkers Village. There is a water stop along the way to keep you hydrated on your stroll!
  • The 1 Mile Family Fun Walk loops around the Washington Monument and back to the Walkers Village. This is a perfect walk for those not wanting to do the longer distance.
