Welcome! We are a walking club in Fredericksburg, VA, and a member of the American Volkssport Association (AVA). Volksmarching is a form of non-competitive fitness walking that developed in Europe. Participants typically walk 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) or 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) on an outdoor trail. Volksmarch associations offer incentive awards (usually pins and patches) for collecting a certain number of events. Volkssport participants enjoy recording distances and event participation in international record books. More of a social event and healthy outing as opposed to a competition, routes frequently involve sites of interests.
A Volksmarch is one of several possible Volkssports that can also include skiing, biking, or swimming. We offer several weekend (traditional) walks each year and sponsor Year Round Events (YREs) in Fredericksburg, Ashland, Culpeper, Stafford, and Warrenton. Walk, jog, or run; every event is at your own pace. For more information about volkssports go to the American Volkssport Association website, ava.org.
