A tradition almost as old as Stanford Football itself, "The Walk" has been a pre-game tradition for the Cardinal and its fans for decades. Stanford supporters of all ages line the pathway, from the Arrillaga Family Sports Center, down Sam McDonald Road to the Gate 1 entrance of Stanford Stadium to cheer on the Stanford players and coaches' walk to Stanford Stadium. The Stanford Band lines up behind the team during The Walk and plays to the delight of fans.
The tradition of The Walk has evolved through the years. To accommodate the needs and pre-game routines of the players, Stanford players and coaches now conduct The Walk two hours before kickoff. Fans young and old are welcome to join the team in this time-honored tradition every football Saturday.
