Ski associations, sports clubs, municipalities, organizations and businesses are challenged to organize walking events and collect kilometers from 4 to 25. May throughout Finland. Both young and old, fitness enthusiasts and “couch potatoes” are invited. Walking is easy and free. Ignite together with enthusiasm and a spark to walk!

Let’s walk all summer! In addition to attending the event, you are encouraged to walk not only throughout May, but also throughout the spring and fall. Everyone can record the distance they walked in the Walking Kilometer and collect as many kilometers as possible for their own association or team throughout the spring and summer.
