The Dallas Trekkers are hosting this event in Richardson. The 5K route will parallel Huffhines Creek and Duck Creek on paved trail. It will turn back into residential neighborhoods and wander through Huffhines Park before returning to the start.
The 10K splits from the 5K to turn North and follow Owens Trail out and back with a short jaunt through a neighborhood park. It then meets back up with the 5K route to return to the start.
To participate in either of the walking events you are required to register at the start. Registration is anytime from 9:00 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 3:00 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.
