San Antonio Walks for Jan 10, 2015 Update!


Due to the predicted freezing rain for Saturday 10 January the Randolph
Roadrunners 2 walks  starting at the Quarry Market will be postponed until 31 January.

Everything else regarding these walks will remain the same.
Please direct any questions to Ellen at ellenott at

The Randolph Roadrunners are hosting TWO (2)  5k/10k walks in San Antonio on Saturday.  They are named the “Museum Walk” and the “Quarry Market”.  Each Walk has a 5k version and a 10K version.

The Museum Walk:  This walk will take you by large homes and estates. The walk is flat except for a few gentle rolling up and down grades. Barney Smith, curator of the Toilet Seat Museum, is looking forward to greeting the walkers at this Alamo Height check point.

The Quarry Walk:  Walk will go through the upscale area of Lincoln Heights.

To participate in either of these events you are required to register at the start.  Registration is anytime from 8 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 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.

Start Point: Corner bakery Cafe in the Quarry Market, 255 E. Basse Rd., San Antonio.

Driving Directions:    From downtown SA go north on U.S. 281; take Basse Rd. exit and turn right. Turn left onto Jones Maltsberger. The Corner Bakery is on the right at the end of the mall. Traveling south on 281 take the Jones Maltsberger exit and turn left. Turn right onto E. Basse Rd. Take the 3rd entrance on right before 281. The Corner Bakery is on the right at the end of the mall.  GPS:  29.4922,-98.4812

Hope to see you there!
