Join other walkers for Cape Walk 2012!

The Department’s Mass In Motion program, funded by the Mass. Department of Public Health,  is delighted to be a cosponsor of Cape Walk 2012. This walk is a biennial event of Cape Cod Pathways, an initiative of the Barnstable County Commissioners and the Cape Cod Commission to create a Capewide networkof walking trails.

Cape Walk 2012 takes place June 2nd – 10th and is a nine-day opportunity to promote a 100-mile end-to-end walking trail along Cape Cod, beginning in Provincetown and ending in Bourne. The walk each day is 7–15 miles with an experienced volunteer Walk Leader. The day usually begins at 8.30 a.m. (see brochure for each day’s schedule), with a designated lunch stop and a shuttle that is always available in case a walker needs a little extra boost. Some participants walk all 100 miles, some for part of one day; everyone is welcome. So put on some walking shoes (and a rain jacket in case of bad weather) and join in on this fun adventure that allows you to experience the Cape in a whole new way!  Visit: for a detailed brochure.
