Trail Ratings/Description: Rated 2A, the 10K route is over surfaced roads, and sidewalks.  The route goes through one cemetery (with a side-trip through the old historic one – not for distance credit) and both business and residential areas.  Because of high curbs, most of the route will be difficult for baby strollers, and do not recommend for wheelchairs. Dogs must be on leash, with cleanup.  The 6K route, also rated 2, does not go through the cemetery, but does pass by all of the “Special Event” locations, including the old historic cemetery..

What is Volkssport? Volkssport literally means a sport of the people. Presently, there are four basic types of volkssports: walking, bicycling, swimming, and cross country skiing. These are noncompetitive events designed to appeal to participants of all ages.  It is not a contest of speed -each participates at his or her own pace.   The volkssport philosophy recognizes that everyone cannot and should not attempt to compete in timed events; but, everyone can and should participate in some lifetime program for exercise. Volkssports events are not laps (except swimming in a pool) around a track or block; but, instead, strive for scenic or historical trails. The events are open to everyone.


Every person who completes the course is a winner and is eligible to receive that recognition designed for the event. This may be a patch, a medal etc. It may be for CREDIT ONLY, which means the event is used for an individual's IVV event and distance award. However, anyone may participate FREE.
