Galveston Volksmarch (walking event) Sat 01/24/2015

Galveston Seawall

The Houston Happy Hikers are hosting a 5k and 10k walk that explores Galveston’s historic district where you will view some of the most magnificent turn of century architecture.  They invite you to take time to relax away from the daily rush; to take a mini-vacation for the weekend as you walk with them and enjoy all that Galveston has to offer

To participate in either of these walking events you are required to register at the start.  Registration is anytime from 9 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: Mosquito Café, 628 14th Street, Galveston, TX 77550

Driving Directions:  From Houston take I-45 (Gulf Freeway) to Galveston. I-45 becomes Broadway. Turn left on 14th Street. Mosquito Cafe’ is on the right after Winnie Street (Avenue G).

Hope to see you there!
