The Spirit of Walking

Volkswalking: Off the Beaten Path



The Bloomington Flying Fish Volkssport Association is affiliated with the American Volkssport Association, an organization which promotes walking and other volkssporting activities for "fun, fitness, and friendship."

Walking, or “volksmarching” is the most common type of event and usually consists of a marked or guided 10K (6.2 mile) route. Walks may be on city streets, in quaint little towns, through rugged forests, or anyplace with interesting scenery. Shorter routes are often available for those who desire. Biking and swimming events are occasionally offered as well. Events are always non-competitive, so you can choose your sport and participate at your own pace!
