Zilker Neighborhood Volksmarch – Austin, TX – 09/26/15


The Colorado River Walkers are hosting a 6k walk and a 10k walk in South Austin.  Both  routes take you through this artistic, older (vintage 1920’s), and economically diverse Zilker neighborhood. The 10k route continues through parts of Zilker Park and past the Umlauf Sculpture Garden. Some walkers may plan a visit to the garden after the walk, as it doesn’t open until noon.

To participate in either of these walking events you are required to register at the start.  Registration is anytime from 7:30 am – until 10:30 am.  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 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.

Start Point: Communities of Christ Church, 2132 Bluebonnet Ln. Austin TX. 78704

Directions:  From I 35 take exit #232A (Oltorf). Travel West 2 miles on Oltorf to dead end at S. Lamar. Left on S. Lamar 0.4 miles. Right on Bluebonnet 3 blocks. Left on Rabb Glen to park at rear of Communities of Christ Church.

Hope to see you there!
