Everyone is a pedestrian at some point during the day, whether it’s by walking, rolling or strolling. People walk for thousands of reasons; to get to the bus or MAX, to go to the store, to exercise the dog, commute to work, spend time with friends, unwind after a long day, explore a neighborhood, get to school, maintain their health or to just have FUN!
Fashioned after Pedalpalooza, Oregon Walks created Walktober with the hope of helping people throughout the region find new ways to walk, find places to walk and meet new people to enjoy walking with.
Oregon Walks conceived Walktober to promote walking as a fun, healthy and ubiquitous activity in the Portlandmetro region. Walktober is an open calendar, which means that anyone can create, post or lead a walk. Walks are put on by people like you! So consider joining the fun and creating your own unique walk to post on the calendar.
