Comments

This is a Regional Director event for National Walking Week. As participants complete registration, they will be grouped (10-15 persons) and guided along the trail. Active Volkssporters from active clubs may be conscripted on site to serve as guides, as needed. The goal of this event is to attract local interest in Volkssporting activities and possible development of one or two new clubs. So, guides and sweeps need to discuss volkssporting activities with all members of the group. Pet dogs are permitted, but must be leashed and under the control of the owner, who must also pick-up after their pet. NO FREE Walkers. Restrooms at the Start/Finish are primitive latrines.

Awards and fees: IVV Credit Only
