Day of Event Info & Route

A schedule of the day and maps of the Walk & Run routes will be posted soon!

AIDS Walk & Run Boston both begins and ends at the Hatch Memorial Shell and the scenic routes travel along the streets of Boston. The route includes three checkpoints staffed by volunteers with water, fruit, and healthy snacks to keep you going.

The Walk route length is 10K (6.2 miles). Wear good shoes and remember to drink plenty of fluids!


What to bring
Bring the cash and checks that you have not mailed in yet. Put them with your pledge sheet in your personal pledge envelope. AIDS Walk & Run Boston also accepts credit and debit cards on Walk Day.

Friends and Family. Participating with a team makes the whole experience more fun! Start a team today.

Water. We will have water throughout the route but it is always nice to have your own bottle to carry with you and make sure you are hydrated.

Snacks. While small munchies will be available at each of the three checkpoints and there will be food samples at the Wellness Festival at the end, we do not serve full meals. You may want to bring snacks or a sandwich to keep you going.

Sunscreen. Even cloudy mornings can turn into sunny afternoons; make sure to apply or pack sunscreen in the morning.

Rain Coat or Extra Layer. Weather in June is constantly changing and mornings can still be a bit chilly, so don’t forget to pack an extra layer or rain jacket.

Comfortable Walking Shoes. Make sure that your shoes are broken in and comfortable to walk in; walking 6.2 miles with blisters is never fun.

Wellness Festival

Join us after the Walk for the Wellness Festival, presented by Whole Foods Market. The Wellness Festival is AIDS Walk & Run Boston’s post-walk celebration of healthy living. The Festival provides an interactive opportunity to engage with the Wellness vendors and our event’s corporate sponsors. We hope you will enjoy the free food, music, and festivities from 10:30 am until 2:00 pm.
