Program Overview

Club 300 is a senior walking program sponsored by M-NCPPC, Department of Parks and Recreation, Special Programs Division’s Senior Services Unit. What began as a virtual walk across Maryland, one mile at a time (a total of 300 miles, aka, Club 300), has grown and blossomed into a year-round senior walking program. The club meets weekly on Monday mornings, April through November, and once per month, December through March.

To add to the club fun, Club 300 members have the option to participate in various walking challenges, most recently the Walk Across America Challenge in which members virtually walked 5,048 miles and earn rewards along the way! The East Coast Greenway Challenge starts on April 5, 2021. Participants who chose to take on this challenge will walk 2,799 miles!

Additionally, there are some free apps for cell phones that will track your miles on your phone. All you have to do is take an intentional walk and track the miles and record it as follows:
    • Record miles online using your Club 300 email address and password provided at the time of registration. It is highly recommended you keep track of your miles on the paper mileage log as well to keep a record of your accomplishments!
    • Use a paper walking mileage log (pen and paper).

      – Keep your head up and look forward.
      – Relax your shoulders, neck, and back.
      – Swing your arms freely with a slight bend at your elbows (if you like, pump your arms).
      – Keep your stomach muscles slightly tightened and your back straight.
      – Your walk should be smooth as you roll your foot from heel to toe.
