Walk Carroll is a long-term walking and exercise program designed to inspire anyone who lives, works, or plays in Carroll County to engage in regular physical activity. To participate, simply track your physical activity and try to reach the CDC-recommended goal of 150 minutes or more each week. With Walk Carroll, you can enjoy free group walking events all over Carroll County. Join us for fun walks, health information, cool giveaways, raffles, healthy snacks, activities for children, and more!
A printable 12-week activity log is also available – see RESOURCES below.
