All are welcome to celebrate IVV World Walk Day 2014 on Saturday, May 3, 2014, hosted by the national headquarters staff of the American Volkssport Association (AVA), along with local AVA walking clubs, in beautiful downtown San Antonio. Choose a 5K or 10K trail (rated 1-A) to explore Texas historical markers, unique churches, and other gorgeous sites within downtown.
Start/Finish point and registration: Holiday Inn, 318 W. Cesar Chavez, San Antonio, Tx. 78204
START TIME: 8:00-Noon. Must be finished by 3:00 PM.
This is a Volksmarching event and you need to register to get a start card. We request a $3.00 donation to help defray the cost of hosting the event.
This is not a speed event. You are encouraged to bring along your children and walk/talk and spend some time together enjoying the great outdoors.
When you finish (anytime before 2:00 PM) you turn in your start card. If you are an official Volkssporter you will have an Event and/or Distance Record Book. When you turn in your start card you will receive a stamp in your record books.
If you do not as yet have an AVA record book, they will be for sale at the start/finish. Just ask for a new walker’s packet. The packet is $5.00 but it contains three coupons for free registration ($9.00 value) as well as both an Event and a Distance book.
