Volkssport events are organized to entice people of every age, both genders, and all levels of athletic prowess to exercise outdoors at their own pace. Walks are designed to include historic sites, scenic vistas, downtown areas, woodland trails, parks, or other points of interest. Check the website frequently for walks. Each walk is free.
In addition to exercise, these events provide a family-oriented social environment in which participants share the spirit of walking–meeting friends, walking scenic trails, and improving mental, as well as physical health, with a natural, accessible, low-stress activity.
('Volkssport' is intended to mean 'sport of the people.') These non-competitive events may be walks, bikes, swims, or cross-country skis. Most popular, however, are the walks–usually 10 kilometers on a well-marked trail with directions and a map to get you back where you started. There is usually a 5 kilometer option for those not wishing to walk 10 kilometers.
Over 1,400 natinwide Year-Round Events are also listed in the American Volkssport Association's book Starting Point.
