Please park at the Belmont Caltrain Station located at 995 El Camino Real in the city of Belmont. From there, you can take a Heart Walk event shuttle, operated by SamTrans, to the event. Shuttles will run from 10:30 to 2:00. There is no participant parking at the event site.
The course is approximately 3 miles long and is a non-competitive, non-timed walk. The walk starts and ends at Marine View Park, which is located on Oracle headquarters in Redwood City. In addition to the 3-mile course, there will be a 1-mile course for participants who prefer a shorter walk.

A light lunch will be offered for all registered walkers in the festival area at Marine View Park after the walk. Walkers will have a choice of a chipotle turkey half-wrap with pepper jack, greens, green chile and garlic aioli, or a vegetarian half-wrap with portobello mushroom, white bean puree and spinach.
Walkers who personally raise $1,000 or more prior to the walk will have access to the VIP Tent where they can enjoy a heart-healthy catered lunch, chair massage and seating.
There will be a Hydration Station in the festival area where walkers can refill their water bottles. While compostable cups will be available, it is highly recommended that all event attendees bring their own water bottle so we can keep waste to a minimum and so that you can keep yourself hydrated throughout the duration of the event. In addition, there will be a water stop along the walk route.
Portable restrooms will be available at Marine View Park.
EMTs will be available in the First Aid Tent, which will be located next to the Info/Donation Collection Tent. Additionally, there will be an ambulance on-site in case of emergencies.
Registered walkers who personally raise $100 or more prior to the event will receive a 25th anniversary edition Heart Walk t-shirt. New this year, men's and women's sizes will be offered. Qualifying walkers can pick up their t-shirt the day of the walk from the T-Shirt Tent.
Heart & Stroke Heroes
Heart disease survivors will receive a red cap and stroke survivors will receive a white cap. Caps can be picked up from the Heart & Stroke Survivors booth. In addition, event attendees can honor their Heart Heroes, Stroke Heroes and Remembered Heroes at the Heroes Wall at the event.
