Walking is healthyMarching is healthy: oxygen, movement, personal choice of rhythm, speed, resting periods ….
Participation is being intensely appreciated by the organisers and the public: It is just as important for trained athletes who run the marathon just well as the family which walk the full 6 kilometres at an easy pace.
Contact with other cultures
All walks are an international experience , a really pleasant
melting pot of cultures and nationalities (ten and more
nationalities from the different continents).
Neighbourhood and Environment
There is a great deal of interest in neighbourhood and environment
of each IML town and it's surroundings. Walkers can witness in a
natural way different activities such as agriculture, nature,
harbour, industry, tourism and city activities are being integrated
harmoniously in the environment.
Different venues provide a variety of tourist experiences. During
walks participants can get acquainted with the beauty of the
unusual landscapes, villages and local culture etc.
Special attention by governments for walking
Nowadays more and more Governments and Local Authorities are taking
measures in their battle against an unhealthy way of life,
overweight, etc. … and are putting 'Sport for all' in the picture.
Walking is recognised as a gentle approach to fitness available to
most active people.
