Join the Virtual Walk community!

Prevention Virtual Walk

$0 Registration ends October 2, 2021 at 11:59pm EDT

Join Prevention and thousands of people worldwide as we kick off our second Virtual 5K walk of 2021
! The virtual walk, which occurs twice a year, is a real walk experience designed to be done on your own terms. You choose your walking course, who to walk with, and what time to start! With the Virtual 5K, the walking is real, and the community is virtual. 

When you sign up and register, you'll have the opportunity to purchase bib numbers and official navy blue Virtual Walk T-shirts. We'll also share Prevention-approved tips and advice, including an exclusive four-week prep plan, in our participant newsletter as you gear up for the Virtual Walk on October 2!

More great reasons to sign up for the Prevention Virtual Walk:

  • Everyone will be emailed an official "I Did the Prevention Virtual Walk" sign to print! Personalize it with your time, who you walked with, or what inspired you, and share your #virtualwalk pics on social media (Facebook: @preventionmag; Instagram: @preventionmag). We might feature you on our site and in the magazine!
  • All participants can create and join teams, which are great for motivating family, friends, and coworkers to join (click on the Team tab to learn more).
  • On the day of the event, you'll get a certificate of achievement to print out or even use as proof of completion.
  • Want to win a new pair of shoes? Or exercise apparel? Tell us why you walk to enter for a chance to win a $100 Brooks gift card. (Visit to find out more!)
  • You can connect with our online community through social media, including in our Facebook group! You'll meet other participants from around the world—and maybe a few from right next door.
  • For the first time, you have the option to experience the Virtual Walk live using the Charge app! You’ll be connected virtually with other walkers all over the world, motivated by an incredible playlist, cheered on by a live event announcer.
