We discuss the concept of multiple recurrence, considering an ergodic version of a conjecture of Erdös. This conjecture applies to infinite measure preserving transformations. We prove a result stronger than the ergodic conjecture for the class of Markov shifts and show by example that our stronger result is not true for all measure preserving transformations.
