Walk Across Texas! Adults

Walk Across Texas! Adults is a FREE, 8-week walking challenge designed to help Texans be more active and establish the habit of regular physical activity.  Since 1996, more than 650,000 Texans have participated in the program to significantly increase their physical activity level.

How Does it Work?

  1. Form or join a league at your office, church, school, senior center, or community group.
  2. Then, form teams inside of your league. Up to 8 team members are encouraged to work together towards the goal of virtually walking across Texas.
  3. Each team member’s favorite physical activities are logged as ‘miles walked’ in our online challenge tracker and contribute toward the team’s mileage total.

Year-round participation is encouraged using locally sponsored program activities, as well as with leadership provided by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension employees.

Selected Participant Comments

“Participating in the program motivated me to reach my goals. Being a captain encouraged me to set a good example and try to motivate my team to reach their fitness goals. I walked 150 miles in 8 weeks. I had not been doing any exercise in the last 8 months. Now I don’t want to miss walking every day.”

“I benefited because my overall health, attitude and physical well-being improved. I was motivated to continue because I had made a commitment to my team, and I was accountable to them.”
