    If your body and shoes are in working order, yes.

    Roman legionaries often did 40 kilometer a day, and here in the netherlands we have "four-day-marches" in which civilians walk 30, 40 or 50 a day

    Yes that is ~12.5 Mi.

    You walk ~ 3 Mi/hr

    That is a 4 hr walk.

    Yes.. I can travel  20 km a day by feet. It will only take me 4 hours to complete  20 km if my speed is 5 km/h..

    Yes , I can personally verify that having walked that far in a day on several occasions , 23 miles (37km) is my record.

    It is definitely possible.

    Definitely.  I've never been a well-trained athlete, but have walked as much as 12 or 14 km in a day (with some rest stops!) -- it is said that a well trained person might walk 30 miles in a day (that's around 50 km).

    A slow walker can easily manage 3 km/h so they'd complete it in under 7 hours. And a faster walker can manage upwards of 7 km/h which would mean less than 3 hours.

    20 km is approximately 13 miles.

    I am now 78 years of age and can do this walk in about 4 hours. 

    If the terrain is easy and smooth , then 4hours is reasonable. However, if the terrain is rough ( hilly or muddy etc) then it will take longer, but still can be done in one day.  

    NB When you ask by 'feet' , I think you mean to walk the distance.
