How Walk Kansas Works

Walk Kansas is a team-based program, meaning that you are part of a 6-member team and together you will select a goal (challenge) to work toward during the 8 weeks. Here are the options for your team.

Challenge 1:  Discover the 8 Wonders of Kansas! This journey requires each person to get 2 ½ hrs of moderate activity per week.

Challenge 2:  Go Cross Country from Troy (NE) to Elkhart (SW), which requires 4 hrs of activity per person/week.

Challenge 3:  Little Balkans to Nicodemus – a trail that takes you through SE Kansas and then up to Nicodemus with interesting stops along the way. This requires 6 hrs of activity per person/week.

Purple Power Solo Trail: Sign up as an individual participant if you do not want to be on a team!
