WHAT IS A WALKING GROUP?

A walking group is a team of up to 8 people who meet weekly for 8 weeks to walk together and socialize.

During the 8 weeks, you log and track your miles in the Walk Across Texas website. You will challenge each other to see how many miles “across Texas” you can walk. Registering and participating will make you eligible for prizes.

  • Create an account and register the team on the Walk Across Texas Website (see Let's Walk Waco Registration).
  • Get together with your team for at least 30 minutes once a week for 8 weeks.
  • Log how many miles you walk each week through your Walk Across Texas Account.
