Physical inactivity is one of the primary health concerns in the Lake Cumberland district. Obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes are just a few of the possible conditions related to an inactive lifestyle.
To encourage more physical activity, Lake Cumberland District Health Department (LCDHD) has announced Walktober is returning in 2023 to the Lake Cumberland District. The event is free and open to everyone.
In each of the ten counties across the region, the department has selected specific walking trails and tracks for the event. During the month of October, complete at least 3 designated routes of your choice. Those who participate and complete the Walktober evaluation will be entered to win prizes given in each county (while supplies last).
As you complete a route, take a selfie at the location. Write a caption telling us if this is your first, second, or third completed walk, then post it using the tag #LCDHDWalktober23.
To be eligible to receive a prize, you must register and complete the Walktober evaluation, and you must be 18 years or older to receive prizes. There is a limit 4 prizes per household.
Visit LCDHD Walktober to register and for the complete list of selected walking trails in every county. For more information, call 800-928-4416, option 4.
