Is it possible to walk a marathon?

Or how about walking/jogging a marathon, even though it’s primarily for runners, do they allow that? and not even race walking or whatever just normal walking, because I want to walk a marathon… someday!!!
thanks for any help 🙂

depending on the marathon, I would say yes. Most marathons have people jog or run, but there are many who cannot do that. I know for many that support a cause, they usually allow people to walk. I have not heard of any marathon where they don’t allow you to walk.

Is there a charity walk that benefits the homeless in Orange County, CA?

I am looking to walk to help the homeless in the coming months (December or later)

Call all the various homeless-related nonprofits in Orange County and ask what opportunities they have for volunteers in December. You can find these looking on Google. Also see sites like VolunteerMatch, idealist, AllforGood, etc.
