This is the 12th Annual Salsa Walk. Or rather, the 2nd Annual 10th and Final --- The Salsa Walk is a walk only event.
Local time: 4:59 AM
All registration proceeds will be donated to the Mercy Project. (https://mercyproject.net/)
The group starts and finishes together. If you need to run ahead to make a bathroom break at an unscheduled stop, then go for it. Or if you need to run a bit to catch the group, then yea do it. However, it is considered in bad taste if you run and wait, run and wait. This is not a running event, and no one can "win". Everyone will start at the Chuy's in Selma TX at 0900 on March 5th 2022 and we will walk to the Chuy's in Austin on Barton Springs road. The 50K stops at the Chuy's in San Marcos, Tx. Each 50K segment will take about 12 hrs to complete. We will have breaks about every 3 to 4 hours as necessary, for water, food, rest etc... Each stop will be between 15 to 30 min depending.
What to bring? A small pack with 32oz water should be fine. Also, light jacket, light gloves, and rain poncho. Money, ID, and phone of course. You don't need to weigh yourself down with foodstuffs etc... You can purchase along the way.
Everyone gets a custom trucker hat, while supplies last.
All finishers will receive a patch to commemorate their finish.
Prepare your mind and body.
As the organizer, I will not be coordinating pick-ups, or any of that stuff. How you get here, and how you get home is your problem.
No umbrellas may be used.
We are serious about the umbrellas. Absolutely no umbrellas.
