The Great Walk 2018

There is a poll that the organizers of the Great Walk want you to fill out, if you are interested in walking or volunteering the Great Walk in June 2018.  Please take the time to fill it out.

Information from the website: 

"The GREAT WALK, is an annual fund raising event sponsored by the Tahsis Lions Club. This event takes place between Gold River and Tahsis, British Columbia,Canada.

It takes place on 63.5 kilometres of gravel logging road between Gold River and Tahsis, on Vancouver Island. It covers what we believe to be some of the most rugged and beautiful country in the world. For a look at the elevation profile of the Great Walk route please click here.

Great Walkers have raised more than $1,000,000.00 for many worthy charities. Walkers choose to solicit sponsors for the recognized charity or organization of their choice; others just walk for the challenge.

The GREAT WALK starts at 4:00 AM near Gold River and is officially ends sixteen hours later in Tahsis at 8:00 PM. (Note: We reserve the right to pick up and bring in any walkers not recorded in by 8:00 PM.)

All walkers receive a GREAT WALK T-shirt for making it halfway (Checkpoint 6) and the coveted Burning Boot Award for completing the route.

There are a total of twelve check-points along the way, offering refreshments, drinks, first aid, and moral support! Road monitors are constanly travelling between check-points to maintain the safety and support of all participants.

Special trophies are presented at the awards ceremony that start at 8:30 PM. Ground transportation between Gold River and Tahsis is available, at additional cost, before and after the GREAT WALK.
