Is this some kind of record? 

Since 2008, when the Inverclyde Globetrotters (the creators of World Walking) set off on their first virtual walk - an epic 30,000 mile round the world adventure - Joe Stewart, one of the stalwarts of the group, has clocked up over 12,500 miles using the same Silva ex step pedometer.

Joe thoroughly deserves his place in the pedometer Hall of Fame!  Well done Joe and well done Silva. A winning partnership.


World Walking is proud to support Fit in ’14; the Scottish Government’s nationwide campaign to encourage organisations and employees to take small, simple steps towards leading a healthier, more active lifestyle in 2014

Welcome to all World Walkers from the many Fit in ’14 active organisations.  Thank you for taking part.  It’s great to have you with us.

The Commonwealth Games are heading back to Scotland in July 2014 and we couldn't just resist the temptation to celebrate by replicating the Queen's Baton Relay route on World Walking. It's massive! - 11 stages, 70 countries, 136,000 kilometers.  We'll be launching it in January.  If you're up for a challenge then it's time to get your team together. 

Thanks to Kate McCheyne at Glasgow 2014 for the smashing photograph of the Baton in Papua New Guinea.

Welcome to World Walking.  Thank you for joining. 

We hope you will enjoy taking part and that it will give you that little extra motivation to want to stay active. 

Have fun. 

PS: If you have an idea for a new virtual walk please let us know using our contact page and we'll see what we can do.
