Kerrville Trailblazers Walking Club – Kerrville, TX

Kerrville Trailblazers is a club that sponsors Volkssporting events. It was started in 1982 when 15 walkers from the Kerrville area got together and joined AVA. It has now grown to 98 members. The Trailblazers hold a monthly meeting on the fourth Monday of each month. It is held in the dining room of the Dietert Senior Center in Kerrville at 7:00 p.m.

What events do we sponsor?

 

  • Weekly Walks

Each Saturday, walkers meet at Cailloux Theater parking lot on Main Street to car pool to a local walk. Everyone walks at their own pace; locations vary. Walk information is placed in the Kerrville Daily Times each week . Walks begin at 8 a.m. from Sep 1- May 31 and 7 a.m. from Jun 1-Aug 31. You do not have to be a member to participate in these walks.

  • AVA Sanctioned Walks

The club sponsors two annual sanctioned walks. These walks are usually 10 kilometers (6.2 miles). Routes are carefully planned and clearly marked for participants to follow. Terrain varies per walk. Along the route, checkpoints are manned by club members to give the walkers a chance to get a drink of water and rest awhile. Participants keep track of their walks by having their IVV Event and/or Distance Record book stamped. Commemorative awards such as medals or patches are available for purchase.

  • Year-Round Walks

There are four self-guided walks starting at INN OF THE HILLS, 1001 Junction Highway, Kerrville. Walks are on paved surfaces, except for the park.  Participants ask for the Year-Round Event box at the hotel front desk. The box contains instruction sheets describing what to do at the start and finish of your walk, written directions, and a map of the route.
