New World Record Walk

On 3 October 2007, over 200,000 Canadians from coast to coast walked one kilometer, and broke the existing Guinness World Record of 100,915 set in 2006 by Western Australia. The Record will likely be confirmed in the coming months by Guinness World Record officials based in London. The World Record Walk successfully launched a WALKOLUTION in Canada, “a revolution of walking”, with the purpose of encouraging people to walk to school, work, and play.
