Being aware of your surroundings and the resources available are the most important safety aspects of The Overnight. This page details the various resources and support systems we provide to maintain your physical and mental well-being during The Overnight.
Every participant who checks-in will receive an Overnight Wristband. These wristbands are how we identify event participants; your wristband lets us know that you are participating in The Overnight, and they provide valuable information to Overnight Staff.
There are two very important aspects of the Overnight Wristband:
If there is an emergency, call 911 first and then call the phone number on your wristband.
The Overnight is a rain or shine event. In the case of inclement weather where it is no longer safe for participants to continue the event (such as lightning or high winds), the Overnight Staff will notify all Crew Members and Staff along the route to get event participants to safety.
Safety is one of The Overnight's biggest priorites. We have many people on the route and at the ceremony site who monitor the event and our participants to make sure evereyone is safe.
Vehicles can be found along the route. You can also call the number on the Overnight Wristband to ask for a Sweep Vehicle.
A Rest Stop or Quick Stop is located every two to three miles along the route.
All police precincts are notifed before The Overnight. They are aware of the route and the approxmiate times Walkers should arrive at their precinct on the route.
