The Castroville Chamber of Commerce is hosting a 5k walk and a 10k walk. These events will meander past historic homes, landmarks and historic sights including the historic St. Louis Catholic Church. It also includes a walking trail in the park.
To participate in either of these walking events you are required to register at the start. Registration is anytime from 8 am – until 11 am. Finish by 2pm. 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. 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.
