To encourage Memphians to get up and moving during the work day, the Downtown Memphis Commission has created a walking route complete with mile markers, free water, prizes, and encouragement right in the heart of the city.
Step 1: Walk It
All you have to do is head to Main Street during your lunch break on Wednesdays between 11am-1pm.
Step 2: Log It
Mile markers have been placed on Main St. every quarter of a mile, so you can easily track how far you walk. You can use popular mileage trackers to help track your steps like MyFitnessPal, Fitbit, or Google Fit.
Step 3: Win It
Every Wednesday logged is a new chance to win! Whether you post your steps or take a photo next to the Walk It Wednesday sign, ensure your name is entered by making the post public and use the hashtag #WalkItWednesdayMem.
If you are not able to Walk it Wednesdays, then the Downtown Memphis Commission encourages you to walk wherever you are! Consider taking 10 minutes to walk around the parking lot at work or take a lap around the block. You can still post a photo and share online with the #walkitwednesday hashtag.
