Eighteen walkers from Walking Club MV-TUR in Vladivostok, Russia, will attend this year’s Canberra Walking Festival.
Members of this club have participated in IML walks in Austria, China, the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Spain, and Taiwan.
We have welcomed international walkers to every one of our past 22 events. Usually we have from 30 to 70 overseas walkers. The country most represented has been the Netherlands, followed by Germany and Japan.
Our first group of Russians walked in 2010. Our highest number of overseas participants was 212 in 2004, when the IML general meeting was held in New Zealand.
