Hello and hope you are doing well.

If you are on regular medications for Asthma and the symptoms are well controlled, you may not face any problems when you participate in the event. The aim of therapy for Asthma is to keep the person symptom free, even while exercising. Check to see if the pain due to arthritis will permit this. Good luck with your walk.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
