Volksmarching
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Volksmarching (from German Volksmarsch meaning ''peoples' march'') is a form of non-competitive fitness walking that developed in Europe. Participants typically walk 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) on an outdoor path. Volksmarch associations offer incentive awards (usually medals, pins, and patches) for collecting a certain number of events. Volkssport participants enjoy recording distances and event participation in international record books. Less frequently used terms are Volkswanderung and Volkswalk. A Volksmarch is one of several possible Volkssports that can include skiing, biking, or swimming.
