Dunbar District – San Marcos 5K/10K on March 19, 2016


The San Marcos River Walkers are hosting this event that starts at the Dunbar Center.  There will be two 5K loops.  One loop goes to the San Marcos City Cemetery.  The other goes through the historic Dunbar neighborhood to Downtown.  Due to a long hill the cemetery trail is rated 2A and Downtown is rated 1A.  Both trails are suitable for strollers although the cemetery trail would be difficult. The Downtown trail only is suitable for wheelchairs.

To participate in either of the walking events you are required to register at the start.  Registration is anytime from 8:00 am – until Noon.  Registration costs $3.00. You will carry a start card with you and at checkpoints your card will be marked.

You do not have to be a club member to participate.  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 3:00 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 available for purchase at the start/finish. Just request 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:  Dunbar Center, 801 Martin Luther King Street, San Marcos, TX  78666.
