Join National Walking Day 2022!

National Walking Day takes place on Sunday 23 September and is organised by Get Ireland Walking. National Walking Day aims to celebrate the efforts of community walking volunteers and to promote the activity of walking at a local level in communities across Ireland.

Building on the successes of 2020 and 2021, the third annual National Walking Day for Ireland is going to be bigger than before. Last year it is estimated that 3.1 million people walked on National Walking Day!

National Walking Day happens on the Sunday after the 22nd international Walk21 Conference: and is part of the European Week of Sport 2022.
Follow the event on social media for interviews with a range of researchers, policymakers, community groups and real walkers across our social media channels.
