As with the previous three walks, more than 500 walkers from around the world are expected to converge on Nusa Dua starting at 3:00 pm when the gates open, prior to the formal start of the walk at 4:30 pm. Participants may choose to run or walk along a five-kilometer route through the beautiful gardens and along the beach paths of the Nusa Dua Peninsula. The Walk will finish with a program of live music, craft bazaar, raffle, auction and refreshments from international food stalls sponsored by the leading hotels in Nusa Dua and Tanjung Benoa.
