McAllen, TX 6K/10K Walking Events 03/05/2016

Mcallen tx

The City of McAllen Parks and Rec Dept is  hosting this event and would like everyone to come join us.  Membership is not required to participate.

The walk route passes Towne Lake and goes northward on paved trails through a greenway with many trees and shrubbery.

Start/Finish point and registration will be at The Old Pump House, 201 N. 1st Street, McAllen, TX  78501

START TIME: 7:00am – 10:00am.  Must be finished by 1:00 PM.

This is a Volksmarching event and you will need to register to get a start card. We request a $3.00 registration fee to help defray the cost of hosting the event.  There will be a 6K and 10K option.

This is not a speed event. 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 1:00 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.

Hope to see you there.
