The Happy Wanderers Walking Club
The Happy Wanderers Walking Club is based in Port Orange,
Florida, near Daytona Beach. We offer fitness, fun, & friendship.
A volksmarch is an organized walk through a scenic and/or historic area
over a predetermined course. the walk is non-competitive, and each
participant travels at his/her own pace, making this an excellent activity
for the entire family. Walks generally cover a distance of 10 kilometers
(6.2 miles) over a circuitous route. A shorter route is available for the
walker who thinks 10 km is a bit too much.
The events encourage outdoor physical activity and exercise, and they
are designed for people of all ages and levels of physical fitness. Routes
are often accessible for wheelchair and stroller users. there is a charge
of $3.00 for all participants in our events. Anyone who finishes an event
is eligible for IVV credit.
The primary categories for credit are Event Credit and Distance Credit.
Event Credits are recorded for each walk completed and Distance Credits are
recorded based on the number of kilometers walked in each event. At various
milestones, the credits can be recorded with the National Volkssport Office
for certification. Other programs (State Capitols, College Walks, etc.) are
available for variety and fun. AVA walks are available throughout the
United States and Canada.
