2022 San Diego 3-Day Route Preview

Just like that, we’re already nearing our last 3-Day event of our 2022 series! As always, walkers, crew, youth corps and volunteers will enjoy the beautiful sights and scenes that San Diego has to offer. Don’t forget to take pictures while you’re out on the route and tag our social media platforms, as well as use the hashtags #SD3Day and #The3Day for a chance to be featured!  

Day 1 of the San Diego 3-Day will start with an inspiring Opening Ceremony at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Once released onto the route, walkers will make their way through the beautiful city of Del Mar, which has always provided great community support. Departing Del Mar, we’ll travel towards Torrey Pines and up the hill before heading to lunch in La Jolla. 

After lunch, walkers will venture further into the quaint but elegant La Jolla Village and then Bird Rock, which is home to some cute mosaic benches! The last neighborhood of the day will be Pacific Beach, which walkers will get a small glimpse of before walking around Sail Bay into camp at Crown Point Park. 

On Day 2, the route will start at camp, and from there walkers will get a tour of the beautiful beach towns San Diego has to offer. Starting off the day, we’ll walk across the Mission Bay bridges, where walkers will get a real feel for San Diego’s eclectic beach neighborhoods as they explore both Ocean Beach and Sunset Cliffs before turning around and heading back to go to lunch. 

After lunch, walkers will venture back towards Mission Bay to further explore Mission Beach and Pacific Beach before heading back towards Sail Bay to walk into camp.  

Day 3 starts again at camp, and from there walkers will walk along the Mission Beach Boardwalk towards Belmont Park. Then, they’ll make their way inland, passing SeaWorld and heading towards Old Town, where the infamous Juan Street Hill is.  

Winding down our 60 miles together, we’ll pass through Balboa Park and Hillcrest towards Downtown San Diego where our Finish Line Festival and Closing Ceremony will be at Waterfront Park! 

We’re so excited to see you all in San Diego for our last 3-Day of 2022! Images used in this blog post are from the 2021 San Diego 3-Day. 

Dallas/Fort Worth 3-Day Route Preview

The Dallas/Fort Worth 3-Day is back after three years! Walkers, crew and volunteers will not be disappointed as this year’s route has some wonderful sights and scenes to be enjoyed over our three-day journey. Don’t forget when you’re out walking to take pictures, post them on your social media platforms and tag us using #DFW3Day for a chance to be featured in the 3-Day social feeds! 

We are so excited to reunite the Pink Bubble at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas. This hotel is not only where we’ll start the route on Days 1 and 3, but also where the Opening Ceremony and Honor Ceremony will be held, as well as 3-Day Main Street and everything it has to offer! 

Day 1 will start off with an exciting and emotional Opening Ceremony where our breast cancer survivors and those living with breast cancer will lead us out onto the route. Once departed from the hotel, we can expect gorgeous views of the Dallas skyline right off the bat. We’ll head into the Oak Lawn neighborhood and walk on and off its Turtle Creek Trails. Next, we’ll pass by the Dallas Country Club before we wander into University Park. Here we’ll cheer on the Mustangs as we pass Southern Methodist University! We’ll start winding down the day with some amazing photo opportunities, passing the Dallas Museum of Art, and the famous Giant Eyeball Sculpture!  

Day 2 will start with a fun bus ride to the beautiful city of Fort Worth! We are so excited to bring the 3-Day back to Fort Worth and can’t wait for you to see this day’s beautiful route. The drop-off and pick-up point will be the same, with a bus ride taking participants back to the Hyatt Regency in Dallas after completing the route. 

We’ll start our journey in Fort Worth seeing Baylor Medical Center. Be sure to take out your phones and cameras, because next up is Magnolia Avenue! It’s a hip, fun and picturesque street filled with restaurants and shops galore. The photo ops don’t stop there, because next up is the Fort Worth Water Gardens. We’ll then pass the Bank of America Tower and Farrington Field before reaching the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens, as seen in the photo above. We’ll end Day 2 at Trinity Park, where buses will take us back to the Hyatt Regency for dinner and our Honor Ceremony. 

Day 3 will start from the hotel as we did on Day 1, exploring more of what Dallas has to offer. First up on our last day together is the Dallas Farmer’s Market! Then we’ll make our way onto the Santa Fe Trailway, where we’ll spend most of our morning.  

Walkers will then get to see Dallas’ beautiful White Rock Lake before heading into the neighborhood of Swiss Avenue. Our final miles together will include Dallas’ Main Street Garden Park and visiting the Giant Eyeball Sculpture one last time before arriving at the Finish Line Festival at Reunion Tower for our memorable Closing Ceremony. 

We’re so excited to reunite for the Dallas/Fort Worth 3-Day! Will you be joining us? Let us know in the comments. Don’t forget to stay tuned for our route preview of the San Diego 3-Day coming soon! 

2022 Chicago 3-Day Route Preview

The Susan G. Komen Chicago 3-Day is returning for the first time since 2013 and we couldn’t be more excited! We’re giving you some key sights you can expect to see each day on this spectacular route. Don’t forget to take pictures when you’re out walking this year and tag us on our social media platforms and use the hashtag #CHI3Day for a chance to be featured! 

The land of deep dish is hosting us at the wonderful Marriott Marquis, where participants will begin each day of the route, enjoy the offerings of the 3-Day Main Street, eat dinner and come together in the Pink Bubble. 

There’s always so much excitement on Day 1, and the Chicago 3-Day will be no different. After the Opening Ceremony, participants will start their 60-mile journey and make their way towards the iconic Chicago Riverwalk. This is a wonderful photo opportunity! Keep an eye out for a sight-seeing boat on the Chicago River because that’s one of our special Chicago scavenger hunt items! 

We then travel through the Magnificent Mile, an upscale section of downtown Chicago along Michigan Avenue, and finish the day off passing Wrigley Field! The Cubs are taking on the Rockies at home, so we are certain to see lots of Cubs fans! 

Before we dive into Day 2 details, there’s one important note to make: On this day, participants will take a fun bus ride to the starting point of the route, and at the end of the day’s route, will return to the Marriott Marquis on busses. This will allow us to see some beautiful parts of Chicagoland that we wouldn’t be able to get to on foot from the hotel.   

Day 2 will start with our Bank of America Breakfast of Champions, recognizing this year’s top fundraisers! After that short bus ride to the start of the route, walkers will tour the Chicago suburbs of Oak Park, River Forest and Forest Park. 

We’ll see many historic homes built by Frank Lloyd Wright, along with his studio — can you get a picture of each one? The historic scenery doesn’t stop there, however, as we also pass by Ernest Hemingway’s boyhood home and his birthplace museum! 

We will end Day 2 full of art and architecture as we see Oak Park’s iconic mini murals before taking a quick bus ride back to our host hotel for one more night of Main Street fun and relaxation, followed by dinner and our moving Honor Ceremony. 

On Day 3, get your kicks because we’re passing by the Route 66 begin and end signs! The final miles of our day will take us down the Lakefront Trail for some beautiful views, and travel towards Millennium Park. This is really where you’ll want to get your cameras out, for pictures at two of Chicago’s most famous public works of art: Cloud Gate (aka “The Bean”) and Crown Fountain! 

We’ll wind down our Chicago 3-Day journey at the home of Da Bears, Soldier Field. Though we won’t be kicking field goals on the turf, we can still soak up the spirit of this iconic stadium. Walkers can look forward to our finish line festival and Closing Ceremony here, before we all say goodbye and part ways after three amazing days in the Pink Bubble!
