WHAT IS VOLKSSPORTING?

Volks•march [vohlks-mahrch] [völks-märch] – noun.

Volksmarching (from German Volksmarsch meaning “peoples’ march”) 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 path. 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 interpretative sites of interests in a wide range of categories such as America’s baseball walks, historic gardens or churches, artistic heritage, author and literary landmarks, baseball stadiums, railroads, museums, etc. A Volksmarch is one of several possible Volkssports that can also include skiing, biking, or swimming.
