The Commute 2013, June 1st – 2nd
The Commute is a 50 mile, 24-hour endurance walk from downtown San Jose to downtown San Francisco along historic Route 82 (The Alameda, El Camino Real and Mission Street).
Starting in the morning, participants spend one full day walking through and experiencing the communities that we often drive past in the rush of our daily commutes. Traveling this easily drivable distance at a human pace is a unique physical and mental challenge. Completing the walk is equally as rewarding: it’s a big accomplishment which earns you major bragging rights and a glimpse of the power of your determination.
Our mission is to assist people as they make this trek by helping them to train and prepare and by providing active support and encouragement along the way.

100% The money we ask for registration goes right back into the event: food, drinks, supplies, and gear. While we’re still a small group we rely on the kindness of big-hearted family, friends, and like-minded individuals to make this walk a reality for our participants.
