Studies suggest that over 115 million people walk for fitness in the United States alone, meaning that if you are trying to form a team of walkers, you should have a huge pool of people to choose from.
If you are putting together a walking team, whether for general fitness or for a special relay event or charity walk, one of the most fun parts is coming up with possible walking team names.
It can be surprisingly difficult to come up with catchy and unique team names for walkers or team names for walks that you’re going to do as a group.
In this article, we’ve put together a list of funny walking team names and some other more serious and varied team names for walkers to give you some ideas for what to call your own group.

Let’s get started!
What Makes a Good Walking Team Name?
Good walking team names encapsulate the personality and vibe of the team members and are easy to remember and understand.
It can also be good to come up with funny walking team names or team names for walkers that describe the goals of the group or favorite (or least favorite!) parts of the sport.
There certainly aren’t any official rules regarding what a walking team name has to include unless you’re forming a team for some sort of official organization that has its own stipulations.
The best team names for walkers are catchy, memorable, and something the team members feel proud about or connected to.
The name could refer to the benefits of walking, the culture and personality of the group of walkers (perhaps you are all moms, or all living with diabetes and working on your health, are all teachers, or all work for the fire station or police department), or accomplishments of the walking club (perhaps you summit the highest peaks in your state or country).

Incorporating these elements into a walking team name can help it be more meaningful.
Depending on what kind of walking team you are forming—a serious, health-related walking team planning on walking for fitness or disease reduction, a race walking team for competitive events, a fun relay team for a one-off walking event, or a team for a specific charity event—you may want a walking team name with some gravitas or more of a funny walking team name.
You might want the walking team name to incorporate something about the specific event, charity, or uniting feature or characteristics of the walkers on the team.
For example, if you’re forming a team of walkers who are cancer survivors who are walking in a charity walk to support a cancer foundation, you might want to highlight that you are all survivors in your team name. For example, you might do a name like Walking Warriors or Conquering Kilometers for Cancer.
If you are doing a walk for heart disease, you might want to include something about the cardiovascular benefits of walking in your walking team name, like Hearts and Soles, Pumping Hearts, and Pumping Legs.

How to Come Up With Creative Walking Team Names
Ultimately, there’s no secret sauce to coming up with a good walking team name. An important first step is to think about what type of personality or vibe you want the walking team name to embody:
Do you want a humorous or funny walking team name?
If so, think about puns or word plays that involve words related to walking (walking, trekking, hiking, stepping, striding, strolling, etc.).
See if you can come up with a way to change a movie title, song title, food, TV show, book, etc., to modify the title or normal word to use a walking-related term instead.
Do you want the name of your walking team or club to refer to the culture of your team?
For example, are you all moms or dads that push strollers, or do you all meet and walk during your lunch break?
If so, you might want to come up with a fun walking team name that plays on this uniting quality.
Examples include Trekking Teachers or Teachers By Day, Walkers By Night, or Lunch Bunch Walking Club.
If you are forming a relay team for a walking event or a group for a charity walk, you might want to incorporate some aspect of the race or location into your relay team name.
Incorporating your town or city name or the type of event you are training for (5k, a charity walk, a 24-hour walking marathon, etc.) can also be a good way to get a more unique walking team name that hasn’t already been taken.
Do you want your walking team name to have more of a serious tone?
If so, it can be good to think about the physical and mental health benefits of walking and incorporate those, or at least steer clear of puns and jokes related to walking.
In general, the best team names for walkers are short, catchy, easy to remember, and either positive, focusing on the benefits of walking or the determined attributes of your walkers, or clearly making fun of yourself (maybe that you might not be runners but you do enjoy a good walk).
If you plan to design T-shirts or other gear for your walking team, having a short walking team name and one that could work well with some sort of cute or catchy logo is ideal. Think about character count and possible pictures or icons that you could use as your logo based on your potential team name.
