Volksmarching

Volksmarching is a form of non-competitive fitness walking that developed in Europe. Participants typically walk 10 kilometers (6.1 miles) on an outdoor path. Volksmarch associations offer incentive awards (usually pins and patches) for collecting a certain number of walks.

Less frequently used terms are Volkswandurung and Volkswalk. A Volksmarch is one of several possible Volkssports that can include skiing, biking, or swimming.
