Marylanders across the state are preparing for the 2022 celebration of Walk Maryland Day on Wednesday, October 5. Please join us.
Walk Maryland Day is a celebration of our state’s official exercise and a call to action to support safe walking and walkability. You can join by registering to walk on October 5 as either a Walk Leader or Sole Mate.

The WALKTOBER 2021 campaign and Walk Maryland Day were by all accounts a great success! Events included scheduled walks organized by numerous agency and non-profit partners all around the state as well as an exciting program of webinars (dubbed Walkinarsfor the occasion) on a host of topics such as pedestrian safety, infrastructure, and health.
Sponsored by the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) with webinars hosted by the Maryland Department of Planning, the WALKTOBER 2022 campaign seeks continued and new partnerships among Maryland state agencies and non-profit organizations to help celebrate the Maryland’s official exercise: walking!
