Walk this Way was created to show the power of what we can accomplish when we come together. 

Different than an individual race, our focus is on collective achievement.

We created a poster for you to use to help get people excited about moving our city forward in this fun and memorable way!

If you are a part of a workplace team, head over to the Walk This Way 2024 upcoming challenge and create or add yourself to your workplace team name. 

 

Though you will not track your distance as a team (we are all one big team ! and will log our distance collectively), you can create or join a workplace team by clicking the Upcoming Challenges tab to find Walk This Way. From there, the Team Leaderboard will give you the option to create or join a team. For more information, take a look here

You can even challenge other workplace teams to see who can go the furthest!

Sure! You can participate in the event together with your family, running group, colleagues, etc.

Choose your own adventure! Complete your walk around your neighborhood, workplace, or public park.

Take a look at our agency partner map and consider learning about and taking a walk past one of our agency partners changing lives near you!

This event is free, so everyone in Winnipeg can take part! 

You can connect a device to the event app—either your phone or your fitness tracker—to sync your kilometres to our overall goal. Make sure you open the app or website to sync your activity everyday from September 6-13. If you don’t want to connect or don’t have a device to sync, manual entry is available on the mobile app and on the web.  

Find your device here and follow the directions to connect your device to your MoveSpring account.

To sync steps data into your MoveSpring account you will need to open the MoveSpring app on your phone, or go to the MoveSpring website and click the green Sync button at the top right. MoveSpring cannot sync your steps data if you do not open the MoveSpring app or website.

Apple and Google Fit users must sync steps from the app. This is because it connects to the Health app and Google Fit app directly.

For more detailed syncing instructions, including a video walk through, please visit this article from the Help Center.

Log in to your account. Click on ‘Connect my device now’ and scroll to the bottom to select ‘Manual Entry’. Enter in your kilometres and/or steps. For more information, check out this article for help in the app or on the website.

If you prefer to cycle, roll, play a sport, or even dance (!) you can still track your kilometres and steps to move us all towards our goal. You can even convert activities directly in your dashboard! Learn more here.

Push notifications allow you to keep up with any content posted in a challenge, stay up to date in chat, and help you remember to sync. Here’s how to adjust notification settings in your account.

When you sign up, you’ll be added to the challenge group chat where you can talk to other participants, all in one convenient place. You can post photos of how you are getting active and share words of encouragement to other Winnipeggers. Remember if you’re sharing your walk on social media—and we encourage you to!—use the hashtag #WalkThisWayWPG.

Yes, please! It would be wonderful if everyone in Winnipeg knew about Walk This Way, and joined in! Use the hashtag #WalkThisWayWPG.

Thank you to our Sponsors

These incredible supporters believe in a better Winnipeg so much that they’re going the extra mile by contributing $80,000 when we hit our 150,000-kilometre goal! Thank you.
