The Kennedy March has some shroud of mystique, but it boils down to something pretty simple: walk 50 miles in one stint.
The original idea, perhaps unsurprisingly, is from Teddy Roosevelt, as a proof of his Marine officer’s strength. JFK picked the idea back up during the late winter of 1963; eventually RFK was forced to finish it – so much for being the president’s younger brother! Since I spent some tome so close to the site of the original march, it’d be a shame not to do it.
I’ll be doing mine, along much the same path in a few weeks, to see what shape I’m in before I head out to Nepal. I missed a repeat of the original Kennedy March, and so I’ll be doing this one on my own.
Should be a blast!
