UC Walks is an annual systemwide event sponsored by our health plans and attracts over 1000 UC Davis employees to participate in a 30-minute walk around Sacramento, Remote Sites and the Davis Campus.

Then, complete an evaluation survey to receive a free t-shirt and to be entered into the prize drawing for a Fitbit*. The evaluation will be sent out to registered participants by email daily starting on May 3. You may only submit one evaluation. Please see our flyer (PDF) for more information.

Two loops, a 0.5- and 1-mile loop, can be found at the UC Davis Health campus, and four 1-mile and one 5k loop can be found at the Davis campus. Try a loop to plug into nature and take a mental break!
