Event information

NO Free Walkers. As an event hosted by the Regional Director, the event serves two purposes. First, it is a fund raising activity for the American Volkssport Association.Second, it is to attract attention to Volkssporting with the goal of generating local interest for Club formation in a currently clubless state. If you have a National Walking Week T-Shirt, please wear. Currently active Volkssporters may be conscripted on-site to assist with the event. Recommend walkers use their walking sticks because of a natural surface trail with inclines. Recommend walkers carry water along the route.
