On the first weekend in October every year since 1991, millions of participants around the world take to the streets to share in TAFISA World Walking Day. TAFISA member organisations from every corner of the globe organise walking events on the same weekend. In 2012, this led to over 12 million participants in over 330 events all walking on the same weekend to promote and benefit from being physically active. The day is open to citizens of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and genders, and organisers benefit from a free promotional package supplied by TAFISA which includes:

  • Use of the official title “World Walking Day“
  • Use of official artwork, including logo and posters
  • TAFISA handbook “How to organize Walking Events”

The TAFISA World Challenge Day is a friendly international competition in Sport for All and physical activity where communities of similar sizes from around the world compete against each other to motivate as many people as possible be physically active for only 15 minutes on a single day.  The event is a fun day that creates awareness and enthusiasm for fitness and active living in the participating communities. 

World Challenge Day is open to communities of any size from any country, and since its beginning in 1991, TAFISA World Challenge Day has been growing rapidly every year!

In 2010, the concept of the event was updated to include both the traditional One-On-One Community Competition and the new World Challenge Day Cup.  Communities participating in WCD are automatically included in both competitions.

In 2014, alongside the traditional WCD around the world, TAFISA will trial a new concept for WCD with select pilot cities from its SportCityNet project in Europe.  TAFISA hopes to roll this exciting new format out for all countries in 2015. For more information, please see the links below or contact the TAFISA office.

World Challenge Day History

It all began in Canada, 1983: The city of Saskatoon initiated the first Canadian Challenge Day. Over fifty other communities accepted the Challenge – and more than 650.000 people took part. From Canada the Challenge has taken its highly successful course around the world and gained international recognition. Apart from the national events international rivalries including communities from all over the world have become the rule and paved the way for the World Challenge Day. TAFISA launched the international event and has coordinated the World Challenge Day (formerly International Challenge Day) since 1990. Since then more than 50 countries with thousands of communities and millions of participants have made the event the largest in the history of Sport for All.
