Mid-Florida Milers Frequently Asked Questions
What do local Volkssport clubs do?
There are over 250 Volkssport clubs throughout the USA, and many thousands around the world. The local clubs all conduct self-paced walk events generally on weekends throughout the year. The club members select a trail for safety, scenic interest, historic areas, natural beauty and walking comfort. Walks are open to the public and anyone may join an event. Clubs also prepare permanent walks (Year-Round Events) that are available at a host business (hotel, coffee house, Park office or many others) that provide you a pre-walked route, instructions, and a great way to see your town, or a new town or park.
How long do you walk?
Most people and families take about one hour for a 5K (3.1 mi) and 2 + hours to complete 10K (6.25 mi) walk trails. Some events can be 11 or 6 kilometers. Most enjoy using their pace and stopping to sight-see, picnic, or even shop! Most weekend walks have a three-hour period for you to complete the walks. Year-Round walks are not limited. You go at YOUR own pace, and you are always a winner at the end.
Where do I find out more?
Travelling outside of Florida? Or, travelling within Florida? Weekend and Year Round Events are listed for Florida at the Florida Walking Web Site. They are listed by state at the American Volkssport Assn Walk Other State Events/Search Events web site and/or by city with a map also available to show you walks close to your location in any state that is a great assistance to walking in new locations.
Volkssporting (people sports) like any sport has its own "lingo". See the definitions on the American Volkssport Assn web site which explains What We Are About.
Rewards and levels of achievement are a plus that motivate you to walk.
