Walking groups (legs) gather on either the Friday evening (most groups) or Saturday evening (some, occasionally) before Palm Sunday - so that's one week before Easter. We actually start the walking fairly promptly on the morning of the following day - Saturday for most groups. We will have some form of gathering around the cross to mark our coming together as pilgrims.
