Walk Across Tennessee is an 8-week walking program designed to encourage friends and family to join a walking team and walk as many miles as you can. We want to encourage you to make a team goal to walk 500 miles (the length of Tennessee) over the course of the eight weeks. Start date is September 1 and the end date is October 26.
Teams are made up of six people. There is no age limit. Anyone can participate. Youth groups, bible study groups, athletic groups, businesses, etc. Do you have a small group at work? No problem. Join forces and combine employees. However, a participant can only join ONE team.
This is intentional exercise, NOT counting steps OR routine daily activities. You can incorporate aerobic, strength, balance, flexibility and weight bearing exercises to help you balance out your eight weeks. Activity/mileage equivalent options are provided below.
