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.
