Walk Across Texas


Walk Across Texas is a free program to help people start moving more and establish physical activity as a lifetime habit. Doing Walk Across Texas with people you know is a great way to help you keep going when you feel like quitting. The goal is walk the mileage across our beautiful state from El Paso to Longview, 830 miles, in eight weeks. To achieve that mileage everyone on a team must walk only about 13 miles each week. Which may be a challenge to some, but not impossible. You can do it!

Walk Across Texas is not a walk-a-thon or an event to raise money. While teams do compete to walk across the state first and/or to accumulate the most miles during the eight weeks, the main point is to get moving and keep moving after Walk Across Texas ends.

After Walk Across Texas ends, you can continue walking by yourself to see how long it takes you to walk across the entire state of Texas.
