World Walking Day Event at Universal City – 05/09/15


May 8th is World Walk Day.  The American Volkssport Association (AVA) National Headquarters will be hosting its Second Annual World Walk Day Volksmarch in partnership with The Randolph Roadrunners, The Texas Wanderers, The Lone Star Walkers, and the Selma Pathfinders.  All participants are eligible to receive a special WWD certificate.

The trail begins by crossing Pat Booker into a quiet neighborhood. It transitions to a city park.  The 10K then continues on to unimproved trails in, around and through a dry and rocky creek bed.   10K walkers are encouraged to wear hiking boots and use hiking sticks.

After completing the walk you are invited to take a free tour of the AVA National Museum.

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

You are not required to be an AVA member to participate.  Everyone is welcome to come and walk with us.

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:
AVA Headquarters, 1001 Pat Booker Road, Suite 101, Universal City, TX 78148

Directions:  From I 35 (either direction) or Loop 1604 take the Pat Booker (TX 218), Universal City, Randolph AFB exit and follow East to AVA Headquarters–on right–Approx. 3 miles.

Hope to see you there!
