Mesquite Heritage Trail Volksmarch – Sat 10/24/15


The Dallas Trekkers are hosting a 5k walk and a 10k walk.   Walk along the new Mesquite Heritage Trail that connects neighborhoods, parks, restaurants and retail from the main spine trail.  This walk will start at the Trail Plaza at Dunford Recreation Center and veer through shaded neighborhoods and to Palos Verdes Lake Park.  The 10k will return through Beasley Park.

You are NOT required to be a club 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.

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.

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:  Dunford Recreation Center, 1015 Green Canyon, Mesquite, Tx 75150

Directions:  From I-30 take Exit 56A toward Gus Thomasson Rd/Galloway Ave. Follow I-30 Frontage Rd and right on N Galloway Ave to Green Canyon Dr.
From 635 take Exit 7A and go east on Town East Blvd. Turn Left onto N Galloway Ave to Green Canyon Dr. PARK in the large parking lot in front of Beasley Elementary.

Hope to see you there!

  1. I hope it doesn’t rain. While we need the rain, I am really looking forward to this walk.
