The Volkssporting program exists in more than 40 countries worldwide and has been in the US since 1976. Volkswalking or walking is a great addition to your regular fitness routine. It's a great way to explore new places, in your own community or communities all over the world. It's also a great way to meet new friends and hang out with old friends. The promise of fitness gets you started but the friends keep you coming back for more.
Most walks are 10k (6.2 miles) with 5k (3.1 miles) options. Each walk has a starting point where you sign-in for the walk, stamp your achievement books, and pickup a map with instructions.
There are costs associated with delivering our program and we ask all participants to consider paying a $3 participation fee ($2 for club members). For some events and new walkers on a limited trial we offer the opportunity to walk for free. Donations are always greatly appreciated, as they help our volunteers continue to deliver this great program.
Each walk is rated to help determine the difficulty of the walk, trails are evaluated based on the degree of incline/elevation (part 1) and the terrain (part 2).
