Welcome to the Walk For Africa Community
Launching Africas’ inaugural multi-stage walkathon event series to boost domestic tourism.
World Tourism Month / Day (27th September 2021).
40 Countries / 40,000 km / 52 Million Steps
The walkathons will be launched simultaneously with single-day and multi-day/stage events spread over the month of September and culminating in official launch ceremonies on the 27th.
You can play a part in helping our 40 host country steering committees to plan their events between January to June as we aim to open public registration to participate, either physically or virtually, from July 2021.
OUR FIRST VIRTUAL WALKATHON IS NOW LIVE!

See how your walk, run, ride, or gym workouts rank on the event leaderboard.
