K-State Research and Extension’s annual Walk Kansas program encourages state residents to shake off winter’s inactivity with an eight-week springtime exercise program, which can include a walking a distance equal to the 423 miles it is from the state’s eastern to western border.

With spring right around the corner, many people hope to get outside, be active and enjoy the warmer weather. Walk Kansas wants to help them do just that. The statewide wellness program, which is in its 13th year, encourages Kansans to be physically active and eat a healthy diet by having them keep track of how much they walk and what they eat over the course of the eight-week challenge, which starts next Sunday and goes through May 10.
A walk across Kansas would be a 423-mile journey.
