Henrico County Walks is for ALL County employees to focus on the importance of regular physical activity to maintain physical and emotional well-being. It is a fact – regular physical activity is essential for good health!
- Every 9 weeks, employee teams will set out toward a new destination city. The third leg of our journey takes us from Richmond, VA to Charleston, SC!
- To cover the 425-mile distance, employees will need to form a team. It is recommended that a walking team should consist of 3 to 4 team members. A jogging/running team can have 1 to 4 team members.
- Number of miles per week to complete based on total number of team members:
- 4-member team: 11.8 miles per week, per team member
- 3-member team: 15.7 miles per week, per team member
- 2-member team: 23.6 miles per week, per team member
- 1-member team: 47.2 miles per week
