Walk in the New Year


Everyone is invited to take part in our Annual Midnight Walk to start the new year off on the right foot.  Start walking at the stroke of midnight and enjoy the holiday lights of Fredericksburg, TX.  The Texas Volkssport Assn. is hosting these 5k and 10k walks.

To participate in either of these events you are required to register at the start.  Registration is anytime from 11pm until Midnight. There will be refreshments available.

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.  Please carry a flashlight and wear reflective clothing.

When you finish (anytime before 3 am) 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: St Joseph’s Halle, 212 W San Antonio St, Fredericksburg, TX

Driving Directions:   From Johnson City:  take US-290 to Fredericksburg, then left (south) on Crockett 1 block to San Antonio. Right (west) on San Antonio to St Joseph’s Halle.

Hope to see you there!
