Volksmarching (from German "Volksmarsch", people's march) is a form of non-competitive fitness walking that developed in Europe. Participants typically walk 10 kilometers (6.2 mi) on an outdoor path. Volksmarching associations offer incentive awards (usually pins and patches) for participating in a certain number of events. Volksmarching participants enjoy recording distances and event participation in international record books. Less frequently used terms are Volkswanderung and Volkswalk.
