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 :




Dear our friends of IML


On behalf of Japan Three-day March, I have to inform you of regrettable news.

The 42nd Japan Three-day March, which is going to be held from Nov. 2nd to 4th, has been canceled due to the severe damage from Typhoon No.19 called Hagibis..

This typhoon caused the grave damage by flooding in and around Higashimatsuyama, the host city of Japan Three-day March.

Rehabilitation and reconstruction are their top priority, so we have made a difficult decision to cancel the event.

Thank you for your kind understanding.

Please  inform your walkers of the cancellation.

Best regards

Hiroyasu Hata

President, Japan Walking Association
