3 Days. 3 Ways to Walk.

Your Susan G. Komen 3-Day® starts the moment you make the commitment. Your 3-Day coaches will support you as you train and fundraise. Our amazing community of walkers, crew, and volunteers will welcome you into our Pink Bubble as you get ready to take an incredible journey to end breast cancer forever.

We’re excited to introduce a new way to walk the 3-Day. You can customize your journey with a 1-Day, 2-Day or full 3-Day experience. Choose whichever commitment, distance and fundraising minimum is right for you. Every step matters. Every dollar raised helps us fulfill our mission.

When you choose the 3-Day Route, your first day begins with an inspirational Opening Ceremony where the adrenaline and anticipation of taking on 60 miles is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. The feelings of pride and strength you’ll realize while walking 60 miles through San Diego’s cool surfside neighborhoods are only matched by the spirit and gratitude of the communities you encounter and those you are helping along the way. You’ll walk along the Pacific Coast Highway and will be wowed by the beauty of Del Mar, Torrey Pines and Mission Bay! You’ll spend Friday and Saturday night with your fellow participants in our outdoor camp at Crown Point Shores.

When you choose the 2-Day Route, your first day begins on Saturday, November 16 with an energetic welcome and walk out. You’ll walk approximately 40 miles over the course of two days, with breaks and lunch along the route. You’ll join us at the end of your first day for a moving Honor Ceremony where we honor and share stories of those we’ve lost, those still fighting and our survivors and thrivers living with metastatic breast cancer. You’ll spend Saturday night with your fellow participants in our outdoor camp at Crown Point Shores, with an option to camp on Friday night as well, if you wish.

When you choose the 1-Day Route, your journey begins Sunday, November 17 where you join in with our 2-Day and 3-Day walkers for a welcome and walk out on the final day of the 3-Day journey. Or you can choose to arrive on Saturday and spend the night with us in camp.

For all participants, your adventure culminates in a Finish Line Festival and Closing Ceremony at Waterfront Park celebrating all you’ve accomplished, remembering those we have lost, and honoring those who are in the fight of their lives.

Whether you walk 20, 40 or 60 miles, you’ll do so in the embrace of the dedicated 3-Day community, sharing stories, eating meals together and making new friends. There’s no question that the 3-Day is a hard journey, but we all know, it’s not as hard as breast cancer. It’s not as hard as getting bad news at your latest scan. It’s not as hard as saying goodbye.

We walk because we must. We walk for ourselves, our sisters, mothers, fathers, daughters, sons and friends. We walk because we can’t sit idly by watching while breast cancer still exists in the world. Since 2003, we've raised more than $902 million to save lives, support community programs, and make huge strides in breast cancer research and access to care.

The Susan G. Komen 3-Day is an experience you’ll never forget. It’s why our walkers come back year after year to recommit their time and energy to put an end to breast cancer once and for all. Register and Join Us.



Over the course of 3 days, walk up to 60 miles with us and feel the power, strength and love of this community. Includes hotel stay or camping Friday and Saturday night, meals, massage chairs and an experience you won't forget!


The 3-Day route is fully supported by an experienced and energetic crew who will keep you safe and cheer you to the finish line! Bring your water bottle, your walking shoes and get ready to step into what we lovingly call the Pink Bubble.

The 3-Day transforms into a 60-mile moving monument dedicated to the power of ending breast cancer forever. With every step, we pay tribute.

  • Pit stops with snacks, drinks and toilets.
  • Medical support along the route, at pit stops and in camp.
  • Volunteer crew members looking out for you and your safety.
  • Community cheering stations to keep you motivated and full of joy.

For two nights (one night if you are a 2-Day or 1-Day Walker), you'll stay with the 3-Day community. You'll refuel and recharge with delicious meals, hot showers, massage chairs and fun and meaningful programs.

You'll stay outdoors under the stars, just like sleepaway camp for grown-ups. We'll provide the tents—you make them home.

You may have begun your journey walking for a loved one, but after three days and up to 60 miles of walking, fellowship, and friendship, you’re also walking for yourself. You’re accomplishing something incredible—celebrate it with us at the Finish Line Festival!

At the conclusion of your walk, we all celebrate together. It’s not a race—it’s a victory for all of us. Your legs may be tired, your feet may be sore, but you won’t be defeated. The Finish Line Festival is your final destination—a hero’s welcome from family, friends and the community to say thank you for the miles you walked and the funds you raised in the fight to end breast cancer.

We’ll close out the 3-Day experience with reflection, honor and gratitude, and of course a celebration of all we’ve accomplished.
