For the research, the scientists analyzed 11 population-based surveys conducted in the United Kingdom between 1994 and 2008 from 50,552 walkers. The analysis showed that an average walking pace was associated with a 20% lower risk of death from all causes while walking fast, about 5–7 km per hour, was linked to 24% lower risk.

Lead researchers Prof. Emmanuel Stamatakis says: “Especially in situations when walking more isn't possible due to time pressures or a less walking-friendly environment, walking faster may be a good option to get the heart rate up — one that most people can easily incorporate into their lives.”
