The Colorado River Walkers from Austin are hosting this Volksmarching event. There will be a 5K route which will be completely in Stagecoach Park. The 10K route include the 5K then leave the park and walk through the historical residential district on shaded streets past older homes.
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 a mere $3.00. 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 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.
