A character can walk twice its listed speed by performing a double-move.  This is usually done by converting the character's standard action for the round down to a move action, and then using the character's move action to walk againNote that a double-move is treated as a single action, so there is no need for the space between the two move actions to be unoccupied, though the character must (obviously) still be able to move through the space legally.

Double Move

Type of Action: Full Attack Action

A double move allows a creature to move up to twice its listed speed with one (or more) of its available movement types. A double-move is considered a single action, so there is no need for the creature to stop at the end of its first move action. The creature must obey all normal rules for passing through enemy creatures, threatened squares, blocked or obstructed squares, difficult terrain, etc.

Like walking, a double move is a cautious form of movement, though it still provokes attacks of opportunity if you leave any space that is threatened by one or more enemies. Note that, because it is a single action, you can only be the target of one attack of opportunity per enemy creature you provoke, even if you leave multiple spaces threatened by the same enemy.
