Canberra International Walking Weekend

The Canberra International Walking Weekend is a non-competitive event open to everyone.

The walking weekend is usually held late March/early April each year.
The next walk will be held on 27 – 28 March 2010.

Walkers can choose a 5, 10, 20 or 30 kilometre course each day for one or both days of the weekend. A marathon course (42.2 kilometres) is also offered on the Saturday.

The walk is a member event of the IML Walking Association (IML) and also sanctioned by the International Federation of Popular Sports (IVV).
