What is Walk Across Arkansas?

Walk Across Akransas Sign Up Form

It's an eight-week team-based exercise program. The recommended team size is 3-8, but the maximum team size is 30 people. Each team sets physical activity goals and tries to meet them with a little friendly competition.

Walk Across Arkansas is an easy, free way to get active while spending time with your friends and family!


When and how do I sign up?

The Walk Across Arkansas campaign happens twice a year in the spring and fall.

Registration for Spring 2023 opens February 27, 2023.

Walking begins March 13th - May 7th.

Register Now!


What's involved?

Get a team of three to eight members, and record the number of minutes you spend being physically active each day. Any moderate to vigorous physical activity (the type that increases your heart rate) counts.

Spend quality time with your family by competing together.

Who can participate?

Anyone! Some suggestions of team categories:

  • Families
  • Worksites
  • Teachers
  • Youth (under age 18)
  • Seniors (65+)
  • Faith-based members
  • General (a combination of above)

Each team needs a captain. Team captains can report for the team or individual team members can report.

How do I record my minutes?

You can log your minutes online at walk.uada.eduby logging in with your username and password that you create when you register, or you can contact your county Extension agent for more information and forms.

Are other activities allowed?

Of course! You can do any type of physical activity as long as you increase your heart rate or break a sweat.

Do I have to exercise with my team?

No. However, we encourage families and members of the same household to do activities together to count their minutes. During this time of social distancing, we can still call a friend and visit while we walk.

What if I don’t have a team?

Contact your local county Extension office to be placed with other group members.

How will this program benefit me?

Most of our participants enjoy the camaraderie and extra motivation from their  team members. We have also learned that many of our participants:

  • Increased their energy
  • Slept better
  • Reduced their stress
  • Strengthened relationships
  • Improved blood pressure
  • Improved blood panels
  • Lost weight or inches
