On October 10, 2015, the Citizens for Brentwood Green Space will host Brentwood’s first-ever official “Volkswalk’’ event created through a partnership between The Citizens for Brentwood Green Space and the local chapter of American Volkssport Association (AVA). The term “Volkswalk” refers to a non-competitive walk. It's not a pledge walk, it's not a race, it is a fun activity you do with a club, with your family, with your pet, or all by yourself! The name has its origins in Europe.
This non-competitive walk is open to any individual, family, or team where one can start the walk anytime between 7:30 am and 9:30 am. The walk will bring our community together while supporting a terrific cause - Brentwood Green Space! All proceeds minus the cost of the event will go towards amenities and improvements at Marcella Vivrette Smith Park. You can receive AVA credit for this event. There will be a 3.1 mile (5 km) or 6.2 mile (10 km) course for those seeking AVA credit as well as several shorter courses for the casual walker that just wants a stroll in the park.
Receive American Volkssport Association (AVA) credit by registering at the AVA table on the day of the event. Cost is $3 for credit and $5 for credit and new member packet. Visit the American Volkssport Association (AVA) website for more information.
