Sponsored by the Newport Ruritan Club, Walkers in Newport is a local walking effort where any individual can walk anywhere at any time. Individual miles are reported weekly and the aggregate miles are used to simulate travels both domestic and abroad. Around 50 contributors post miles each week. So far this year, walkers have reported 6,170 miles for a total of over 208,544 miles since the program’s inception January 1, 2014.
