WHAT YOU SHOULD EXPECT

Expect a challenge physically, mentally, and spiritually, but prepare for a blessing!  It is not always easy to stay in focused prayer for hours on end, and it is definitely not easy to walk for hours at a time, but this is one challenge that will leave you with a sense of accomplishment and spiritually charged!

While the course does cover 40 miles*, please remember that our goal is to cover the City of Baytown in prayer collectively. You are not expected to walk all 40 miles.  Cover the City is designed for you to walk as much or little as you are able.

We will have support vehicles and “potty trailers” constantly circling the course, checking on walkers, and providing aide in any way they can. There also will be support tents every 2.5 miles of the course, with refreshments, first aid, and friendly volunteers ready to assist you or take you back to the walk start, if needed. We will provide you with a phone number to our support crew, in case of emergency.

Whether you are able to walk 1 mile or all 40, you will be a part of bringing the power of prayer to our city!

*Due to construction on Hwy 99 the 2021 course will be 33 miles.

HOW TO PREPARE

The majority of people that have participated in the Cover the City have not “trained” for the event; however being in good physical shape is definitely a plus!

 

  •  Prepare by having a good pair of walking/running shoes
  •  A hat, sunscreen, Vaseline, and a cell phone are a must!
  •  A water bottle is helpful as well as a light back pack or something to carry snacks.
  •  It is mandatory that every walker wear a high-vis Cover the City shirt to wear (included in $12 event registration)

 

Our support crews cannot be everywhere at once so it is always best to be prepared.

HOW CAN MY CHURCH/ORGANIZATION GET INVOLVED?

  1. Host a rest tent on the walk course
  2. Volunteer a shuttle or van with driver to help walkers back to start once they have completed walk
  3. Show promotional video on your website, social media or to your congregation
  4. Register and participate in the walk
