There are 32 Walking Clubs in Texas that host AVA sanctioned volksmarches. What is a volksmarch you ask, well it is the sport of walking. Visit the short youtube video, it explains it best. Although it was made by clubs in Colorado and Washington/Oregon the facts apply to us here in Texas also. The AVA has volksmarches in all 50 states so where ever you go, you can take a tour and see things off the beaten path so to speak. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hISCd4v-ng
Now that you know what we do I will tell you about the clubs here in Texas. My header shows a few of our club logos. Actually the Turtle club has disbanded, after thirty years of hosting events they retired. I am now a member of the Texas County Walkers, Volkssportverein Fredrichsburg, and the Brazos Valley Trailblazers.
Our walking clubs are promoting fun, fitness, and friendship. Go to http://www.ava.org/gen3/data/events_results.asp?StShortName=TX and find a volksmarch near you if you are in Texas. Just change the last two letters for your state if you live elsewhere. Hope you get outside and enjoy some great walks.
