The Texas Wanderers are hosting these walks (5K/10K) on Saturday. This event is held on a 1200 acre natural area just south of downtown San Antonio. In addition to Mitchell Lake the natural area includes wetlands, and an upland habitat. The walk route will be on dirt and gravel trails. (Dogs are not allowed at this event.)
To participate in any of these walking events you are required to register at the start. Registration is anytime from 8 am – until 11 am. Registration costs a mere $3.00. (There is also a $3.00 admission fee at this event for the Audubon Center). You will carry a start card with you and at the 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 2 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.
