Kitsap Volkssporters

2013 Summer Tuesday Night Twilight Guided-Walk Series


Kitsap Volkssporters (KV) is a member of the American Volkssporting Association (AVA).  AVA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to the promotion of a healthy lifestyle through fun, fitness and friendship for people of all ages and abilities.  A volkssport is an organized, non-competitive event (walk, bike, swim, or cross-country ski).  Most activities are walks and most walks are usually 10 kilometers (6.2 miles), or 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) and are rated 1 to 5, with 5 being the most difficult.  Typical walks are in the 1 and 2 categories which may include hills and slopes.

In summer 2013, KV wants to get people outdoors walking for the fun of it.  We have scheduled a Tuesday evening Twilight Summer Guided-Walk series for seven weeks starting on July 2, through mid-August.  Walks could continue beyond these dates if there is enough community interest.  Group walks will be a 5-6K or 10K walk, depending also upon interest and number of walk leaders available.  All walks will start @ 6:30 pm.  5K walks will take an average of 1- 1.5 hours, depending on the walk and walker’s abilities.  10K walks are often completed in 2-2.5 hours.

Kitsap Volkssporters typically meet on the first and third Saturday of the month at 9:15 am for group walks.  Quarterly club meetings are held after our Saturday group walks. You don’t have to be a club member to participate in our walks, just come out and enjoy them.  The AVA motto is “Fun, Fitness, Friendship”—that’s what we’re in it for and we hope you’ll join us.  Please join us to meet some new friends and explore our local communities via walking.  We promote our Year-Round-Events (YREs) similar to those below, those of neighboring clubs and host traditional one-time walks such as the May 25 & 26 Fort Flagler Triangle of Fire Walk.  The location changes for each walk, so please check the webpage at for the latest information.  Call Ric Catron (President effective July 1, 2013) at 360.516.6550, or for additional information.
