Walk Maryland Day is October 2, 2019

What is Walk Maryland?

Walk Maryland is a celebration of our official state exercise--walking! It's also a call to action to promote awareness about regular walking all year round for physical activity and improved health, engaging Marylanders with fun walks of all sizes and shapes.

Oct. 2nd markes the 5th Annual Walk Maryland Day celebration, and all Marylanders are encouraged to take time on that day to participate in some type of phsical activity (ex., walking). Even though Oct. 2nd will be our official celebration, we want to encourage everyone to go walking all year round. The point is to get up, get out, and get active everyday!
