About Walk to Tuk

Walk to Tuk is an annual community walking challenge that takes place in January and February. Community members, schools, and workplaces are encouraged to form teams and conceptually walk the distance of the Big River from Fort Providence to Tuktoyaktuk, a total of 1,658 km.    

This free event is a great way to meet new people and stay active during the cold and dark months of winter. Participants have from January 2 to February 29, 2020 to collectively walk 1,658 km and get their team to Tuktoyaktuk.

2020 marks the 10th anniversary of Walk to Tuk and we are excited to celebrate this milestone with you!
