Edmonton participates in Winter Walk Day, a province-wide initiative, to encourage you to be active during the winter months.

Winter Walk Day celebrates our Alberta winter while promoting the year-round health benefits of walking.

Join Us in Downtown Edmonton

Date: Wednesday February 7, 2018
Time: 12pm - Walk will begin around 12:10pm.
Location: ​Meet just inside City Hall.
Walk will last approximately 45 minutes and will be outside.

No registration is required.

Gear up appropriately for the weather: comfortable shoes and clothing. Free giveaways for the first 100 walkers!

Keep Warm and Dry

  • Listen for the windchill index with the weather forecast. The index likens the way your skin feels to the temperature on a calm day. For example, if the outside temperature is -10°C and the wind chill is -20°C, it means that your face will feel as cold as it would on a calm day when the temperature is -20°C.
  • Dress in breathable layers to keep warm and avoid overheating.
  • Wear a hat. Most of your body heat is lost through your head.
  • Wear warm, waterproof boots, roomy enough to allow wiggle room for your toes.
