Volksmarch on Perdido Key Feb. 13-16

BIG walking event is being held next weekend, February 13-16 in Perdido Key …… President’s Weekend Volksmarch. 

       This is NOT a race but walking at one’s own pace.  The distances of the walks are either 10K (6.2 miles) or 5K (3.1 miles) but if someone can only go a mile, so be it.  We just want to encourage volksmarching/walking for Fun, Fitness and Fellowship !  The volksmarches/walks are free unless one wants to keep a record of their walks in a volksmarch book and then that fee would be $3 per volksmarch/walk.
