Training Walks

Our volunteer-led training walks are scheduled throughout the season in locations all across the country. Walkers of all fitness levels are welcome, and they are a great way for walkers to get in shape and meet new friends.

Start building the Overnight Community today
We need volunteers like you to organize Training Walks in your area. We’ll help you reach out to your fellow Overnight walkers, and you can invite friends, family, and donors to come out and walk with you. The Overnight is not just one night – the sooner you start to build the community, the better experience you will have.
