Join the Global Movement!

World walking day




The global pandemic brought by COVID-19 has stunned our societies, grassroots sports and health systems, and governments worldwide. Defeating this pandemic is only possible if we stand together and stay connected as a united front, once again proving the power of sport and physical activity to unify the world.
TAFISA wants you to stand with us in diminishing this pandemic through something the world has never seen before, the most accessible and inclusive 24-hour relay around the globe!
On 4 October 2020, TAFISA several thousands of people from 63 countries across all continents took part in World Walking Day and passed the baton across every time zone in the world. Read more about the event
