The Tarrant County Walkers are hosting a 5k and 10k walk. The walk starts at the Arlington Visitors Center. From the visitor’s center the walk route will take you through local parks and around Cowboy Stadium. The volksmarch route will pass the Christkindl Market were you will have the opportunity to enjoy German food, entertainment and shopping. Entrance to the Christkindl Market is free.
The Arlington Christkindl (Kris-kin-dill) Market, November 29 -December 22, 2013, is an enchanting family market in the tradition of markets held throughout Germany during the Holiday season. It is a charming festival with twinkling lights and the holiday sounds and aromas of Christmas. As a special treat, Le Theatre de Marionette will be performing, too.
To participate in either of the walking events you are required to register at the start. Registration is anytime from 9:30 am – until 12:30. 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.
