NOC World Walk today

4 October, 2020

The National Olympic Committee of Sri Lanka (NOC) will join the world Walking Day today from 10 am connecting people by creating a wave across the world from East to West covering all 24 time zones.

The launch in Sri Lanka will see a half day event near the Kelaniya Temple where approximately 75 sport actors including roller-skaters, athletes, members of the Executive Board and Athlete Commission and staff of the NOC Sri Lanka, sport administrators and media will gather.

The programme will commence with an introductory speech and then the roller-skaters will do the baton relay around the temple while others walk around the temple. Anyone can join by choosing their favourite active event like walking, running, cycling, swimming, canoeing, skateboarding, climbing, horse riding and surfing. Participants are invited to register for participation for free on the TAFISA website: to receive resources and support to be part of the global event.
