We love to walk year-round, but we especially encourage folks to get out and lead walks in their neighborhood during Steptember! Steptember is a month of walking fun, brought to you by Oregon Walks.

Oregon Walks conceived Walktober (Steptember’s predecessor) to promote walking as a fun, healthy, ubiquitous activity in the Portland metro region. This is an open calendar, which means that anyone can create, post, and lead a walk. Walks are put on by people like you!

Walktober was developed as the “Pedalpalooza for walking,” and Steptember is the next iteration of that excellent idea. (Thanks to Shift for creating such a great idea!)

A big thank you to Portland Bureau of Transportation for supporting Steptember!
