If so, volkssporting may be for you. The Vaca Valley Volks Walking Club, Vacaville, California was formed in 1986 to sponsor and promote volkssporting in the local area. Volkssporting events include walking, biking, swimming and cross country skiing. The majority of the events are walks and are called "volksmarch" - a people's walk.

A volksmarch is non-competitive and is for singles or the whole family (even the dog at many events). It is an adventure in health, recreation, fellowship and fun. It is not a contest of speed or endurance. Participants do the walk at their own pace but must complete the event before the finish time. All of our events are sanctioned by the American Volkssport Association (AVA). Different clubs put on walks in their local area. Most of the walks are 5K/10K (about 3 or 6 miles) and locations of nearby clubs range from San Francisco to Lake Tahoe.
