Medina River Natural Area Volksmarch (5k/10k) – 04/09/2015

medinariver

The Selma Pathfinders are hosting an event in this beautiful 511 acre natural area. The Medina River Trail is a natural gem in south San Antonio.  As it parallels the river, the pathway winds through the lush woodlands of the Medina River Natural Area. Along the way, you can enjoy beautiful views of the waterway, glimpse of the abundant wildlife in the area and gaze in awe at the park’s towering cypress, pecan and oak trees.

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 will be on cemented and maintained dirt trails near and along the Medina River.

Start Location:  Near ranger station.

START TIME: 8:00 am – Noon.  Must be finished by 3:00 pm.

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 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.

Directions:    As you enter the entrance off of Hwy 16 (Palo Alto Road) between Loop 410 and 1604, turn right through an opened gate into a grass parking area. Look for an AVA sign pointing you through to parking. Do not use the public parking area that is to the left after entering from Hwy 16.

Hope to see you there.
