5K Walk

Everybody can walk the CHaD HERO! If running isn't your thing, this time it's your turn to wrangle the kids, or you're taking it easy with an injury; be a CHaD HERO and walk the 5K.

The 5K walk shares its course with the 5K run and the first loop of the half marathon. The terrain is gentle looping through the Dartmouth College Campus, and Hanover, NH's Occom Pond. It is a great option for anyone, including kids and families who want to stick together.

NEW this year: 4 family-friendly HERO Games On-the-Go! 

  • Test your Batman skills and crawl through Batman’s secret cave.
  • Try your luck at the Captain America frisbee toss!

  • Make your way through Spiderman’s web obstacle course!

  • Channel your inner Wonder Woman at the Lasso of Truth ring toss.

Learn more.

The official walk start time is 10am with Kid HERO on sight to give each participant a high five and send them off on a heroic walk! 

Walkers are invited to start their walk anytime between 9:45am - 1:00pm on CHaD HERO DAY with 2 exceptions:

  • Walkers are not permitted in the starting area between 11:30am and 12:30pm during the official start for Cam's Course, or the 5K and half marathon runs
  • Walkers need to plan to finish their walk by 3:00pm when course support ends.

Walkers are asked to stay on sidewalks as much as possible, and to please be aware of the runners on the course so as to not get in their way. Strollers are permitted for walkers.

Check out the course map and register!

Embrace the challenge and join us as we HERO up and take the oath to protect CHaD kids on October 22! 

HERO Oath:

On Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth
I promise to protect our youth
For every child, mom, and dad
I’ll support the work of CHaD
I’ll be on the Green next year
In my tights and hero gear
To be a part of this great FORCE
And not complain about the course
