Walking is healthy
meet other cultures
combination with your vacations


The IML Walking Association is a non-political, non-profit organisation whose purpose is:

  • to promote walking as a worthwhile and healthy recreation; and
  • to foster international understanding and goodwill by encouraging participation at walking events in other countries through a program of incentive awards. This is accomplished by promoting international multi-day non-competitive walking events in each of the member countries.

For administrative purposes the IML Walking Association is broken down into two Regions: the European Region and the Pan Pacific Region."Nos Iungat Ambulare" is the official motto of the IML Walking Association which, when translated into English, means "May walking bring us together". Come join us at an IML Walking Association event, and experience the atmosphere of goodwill and friendship amongst the international and local participants. Use the IML Walking Association worldwide program of events to:

  • see different countries;
  • experience different cultures;
  • make new friends; and
  • renew friendship with walkers you have previously met

We look forward to seeing you there!



News flash :


!!! Info  IML &  IVV  common events !!!


Since the rules of the IML &  IVV  Cups, IVV - Asiapiads, IVV - Europiads and IVV Olympiads  correspond to the IML specifications, i.e. each day of these events at least 20 km, the IML &  IVV  record books as well as the IML passports can be stamped at these events. In the IML passports these entries count only for the figures and not for the other special IML awards.
