The Plano Walking Club is hosting this event that starts at the Lowe’s in Murphy Marketplace. The walk will be on a nature trail as well as a concrete trail and will cover parts of the Maxwell Creek Trails.
To participate in either of the walking events you are required to register at the start. Registration is anytime from 9:00 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.
