The 2011 Cross-Jersey Walking Challenge from the East Coast Greenway Alliance and FreeWalkers.org is free and open to the public. It challenges you to walk 100 miles across the entire state – from Trenton to New York City within the next 12 months – along the East Coast Greenway.
Part of this effort is to add advocates of alternative transportation who are interested in helping build better and healthier communities.
If you become a registered walker, you can enter and track progress at their website during the year.
You can walk when you want, alone or with friends, or join the FreeWalkers on one or all of the three free organized group walks that in combination will cover the entire 100-mile stretch of the ECG through New Jersey.

April 16, 2011 - New Brunswick to Metropark
May 21, 2011 - The Big Walk (Metropark to Penn Sta. NYC)
