The Dallas Trekkers are hosting the event this Saturday, March 15th. The walk explores the Irish-named streets and the Eastwood, Old Lake Highlands, and Lochwood neighborhoods of Dallas. It also follows along Dixon Branch Greenbelt Park.
Start/Finish point and registration will be at White Rock Sports Bar & Grill, 718 N. Buckner Blvd # 108, Dallas, Tx
START TIME: 8:30-11:30 AM. Must be finished by 2:30 PM.
This is a Volksmarching event and you need to register to get a start card. We request a $3.00 donation to help defray the cost of hosting the event. There will be a 5K and 10K option.
This is not a speed event. 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 1:30 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.
