Walk Maryland Day

September 26th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

Maryland’s official state exercise – walking – will step into the spotlight next month when the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) and partner agencies, nonprofits and communities across the state host the third annual Walktober celebration. Festivities planned throughout October include the eighth annual Walk Maryland Day on October 5, as well as an online series of “Walkinars” focusing on pedestrian safety, health and commuting.

“Walking is an important and beneficial part of our lives, providing Marylanders with transportation as well as health, well-being, recreation and quality time with our friends and families,” Governor Larry Hogan said. “The celebration of Walktober reminds us of the simple pleasure of enjoying Maryland’s beauty on foot, and encourages us all to be mindful and aware of pedestrians in our communities.”
