The LoneStar Walkers are hosting an event in conjunction with the annual “Tour De Castroville” which is a Walk, Run and Ride family event. Registration for the volksmarch is a separate from the Tour De Castroville registration.
The volksmarch will follow the same routes used by the “Tour” participants as they go through historical Castroville, “The Little Alsace of Texas.” The checkpoints will be self-service and will be stocked with a variety of complimentary food and drink products.
Everyone is invited to come walk with us. Membership is not required for you to participate. However, this is a Volksmarching event and you will need to register. We request a $3.00 registration fee to help defray the cost of hosting the event.
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. The route is flat and goes through the downtown area and along city streets. Some parts are tree covered.
Start Location: Castroville Regional Park, 816 Alsace ST, Castroville, TX 78009.
START TIME: 8:30 am – 11:30 am. Must be finished by 2:30 pm.
When you finish (anytime before 2:30 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.
