Historic Rusk Walk – Sat July 12

Worlds Longest Footbridge

Worlds Longest Footbridge

All are welcome to help us celebrate K. Rogers’ 86th birthday in her hometown. Rusk is the county seat of Cherokee County and is home to many historic buildings and the world’s longest footbridge.

Start/Finish point and registration:  Sweets by Pam, 121 S Henderson St, Rusk, TX

START TIME: 8:00-11:00 AM.  Must be finished by 2:00 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.

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 2:00 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.

Directions to Walk Location:   From US-69, take US-84 west to downtown. Park on the square.
