Steptember is a month of walking fun - a way to encourage people throughout the region to find new places to walk and people to enjoy walking with. Oregon Walks conceived Walktober (Steptember’s predecessor) in 2011 to promote walking as a fun, healthy, ubiquitous activity in the Portland metro region.

Everyone is a pedestrian at some point in their day, whether it’s by walking, rolling, or strolling. People walk for a thousand reasons: To get to the bus, MAX, or store, to walk their dog, to commute to work, to spend time with friends, to unwind after a long day, to explore a neighborhood, to get to school… We walk for many reasons or for no reason at all.

Oregon Walks celebrates that all month long by leading walks and promoting walks lead by others - people like you! Steptember is an open calendar, which means that anyone can create, post, and lead a walk. Anyone can join a walk. So what are you waiting for?
