National Walking Day

Event Recap

National Walking Day, hosted by Arlington Transportation Partners and WalkArlington, was postponed this year due to the coronavirus pandemic and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) recommendations to practice social distancing, but the day didn’t pass unnoticed.

On April 1, we hosted our first “virtual” walking day event. All around Arlington people participated in Virtual Walking Day and posted pictures on social media. We loved seeing everyone walking alone, but still together, including Arlington County employees, representatives, friends, and neighbors.

We’ll update you on future National Walking Day plans, but until then grab your walking shoes and get out to explore Arlington. Share your walks with @WalkArlington on Instagram using #ArlingtonWalks.
