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.

All are welcome to come walk with us.  Walk route will be in town and on county roads and some on major highway.

Start/Finish point and registration:  Rains County Library, 50 Doris Briggs Pkwy, Emory, TX 75440

START TIME: 8:00 – 11:00 AM.  Walkers must be off trails by 2 p.m.

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.

When you finish (anytime before 11:30) 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:   Take US-69 to Emory (north of I-20, south of I-30) to the library on the west side of US-69 and north of downtown Emory.
