The IVV passed a motion at the Congress of Delegates last year concerning the Event and Distance Books. This must be implemented by 1 Jan 2018. I am giving you this now so that you are aware of the coming changes.


The IVV Award for events and kilometers will be granted in the following increments:

Events: after 10, 30, 50, 75, 100, 125 etc. up to 600 Events. After that the walker has the choice to hand in the record book either after 50 Events (650, 700, 750 etc.) or after 100 Events (700, 800, 900 etc.)

Distance: after 500, 1000, 1500, etc. up to 10,000 km. After that, the walker has a choice to hand in the record book either after 1,000 km (11,000, 12,000, 13,000 etc.) or after 5,000 km (15,000, 20, 000, 25,000 etc.)

The awards will be a certificate only. Patches and pins (if available) will be available for purchase by the walker.


The following books will be used (from 2018 on):

Event books:
Green: 10, 30, 50 events

Purple: up to 600 events

Red: more than 600 events in increments of 50 or 100

Distance Books:
Blue: up to 10,000 km increments of 500 km

Yellow: more than 10,000 km in increments of 1,000 or 5,000 Km.

Walkers may use the yellow book in the new increments now if they wish.

You may continue to use the books as they are until 1 Jan 2018.
