About WalkWorks

Lace up your shoes and join Chester County in its initiative to get walking!



WalkWorks ChesCo! is a county wide initiative to promote walking among all ages and abilities. While Chester County is acknowledged as the healthiest county in Pennsylvania, one in four Chester County adults is considered obese and one in four children is classified as either overweight or obese. WalkWorks ChesCo! uses the most simple and inexpensive method of exercise – walking!

WalkWorks ChesCo! is a part of Pennsylvania Department of Health’s (PA DOH) WalkWorks initiative to increase opportunities for physical activity. PA DOH has partnered with the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health Center for Public Health Practice to create a network of fun, fact-filled, community-based routes and walking groups.

We encourage you to join WalkWorks ChesCo! and track your steps, walk our WalkWorks routes, and review walking tips.
