Yes - route step is used on long road marches. I got very familiar with it
on the 20k marches we used to do. If you tried to cover that in step, you'd
want to die after the first 2 miles.

That is true - but most often the route step is used when a VERY large
distance is to be covered. At that point you'd not want to keep at 120 step
march maintained, as it would seriously exhaust your troops. Route step is
not something you would attempt to manuver a formation with, just get them
to where they need to be without wearing them down

In reply to the route step vs a 120 beat step...ground maybe covered as fast
or faster depending on the unit...the terrain available, cover and
concealment and the type of mission your unit is on. All these variables
come into play as to whether or not route step covers more or less ground
than the standard 120 beat "in-step" march.
