Motivating Central Wisconsin to live healthier, more active lives by producing and promoting challenging aerobic activities and recreational resources that encourage active lifestyles.

What is your favorite way to be active? Get out and get moving in Portage County, Wisconsin. Explore the wonderful ways to stay moving and healthy on foot or bike in the Central Wisconsin region. Register and train for an upcoming event with family and friends, or just explore the trails and routes for fun.

Being active helps reduce the risks of heart disease, diabetes, stress-related issues and other health problems stemming from being sedentary. Find fun ways to reduce your risk, and participate in local health and fitness events, like Walk Wisconsin.

Join us for the 10th Annual Walk Wisconsin Walk Marathon, Saturday, June 7th!

Moon Walk Wisconsin is just around the corner!

Save the date to join us on October 11, along the moon-lit Tomorrow River State Trail. The Tomorrow River State Trail begins in Plover, Wisconsin (behind the Copps Market on Highway B) and extends through eastern Portage County. The moon reflects off of the limestone trail, providing a partially lit path. Carved pumpkins light the mile markers. Like the summer Walk Wisconsin event, snacks, beverages, portable toilets and rest stops are available along the course.
