Tuktoyaktuk’s 2023 Walking Challenge has Begun

The Walk to Tuk Challenge is officially underway!

The NWTRPA Walking Challenge (previously known as Walk to Tuk) is an annual community walking challenge hosted by the NWT Recreation and Parks Association (NWTRPA). 2023 marks the 13th anniversary of the Walking Challenge. Community members, schools, and workplaces are encouraged to form teams and conceptually walk the length of the Big River, a distance of 1,658km from Fort Providence to Tuktoyaktuk. Participants have from January 2 to February 28, 2023, to get their team to Tuktuuyaqtuuq.

Weekly draw prizes, team captain prizes, and prizes for photos and stories are available to be won. The grand prizes, open to all NWT participants, will be travel vouchers offered by the main sponsor of the event, Canada North.

Every second Monday, times or distances will be made official on the map and team status pages on the new Walking Challenge website. Times or distances will also be checked by the Walking Challenge admin team and participants who inched their way to Tuktoyaktuk that week will be entered into the weekly prize draw.
