Texas A&M Volksmarch (Walking Event) Nov 30

The Brazos Valley Trailblazers are hosting a 5k and 10k walk.   The walk starts at the Hensel Park.  The walk routes will be on paved streets and sidewalks through residential, business and campus area.  What a great way to work off some of those extra Thanksgiving Day calories!

To participate in either of these events you are required to register at the start.  Registration is anytime from 9 am – until noon.  Registration costs $3.00. You will carry a start card with you and at checkpoints your card will be marked.

This is not a speed competition. 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 3:30 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.

Start Point: Hensel Park, 502 S. College Ave, College Station, TX

Driving Directions:  From either north or south on Texas Business 6, merge onto Texas Ave.  Take Texas Ave. to University Drive (approx. 3 miles).  Go left on University, 1/2 mile and turn right on College Ave.  Hensel Park is ahead on the right.

Hope to see you there!
