WHAT IS A VOLKSMARCH?
A volksmarch is an organized hike or walk which usually covers a distance of 10 or 20 kilometers (6.2 or 12.4 miles). The trail usually goes through woods or near historic or scenic areas. It is designed to appeal to everyone and it is not a contest of speed or endurance. Volksmarching (walking) is good exercise and encourages outdoor physical activity for people of all ages and physical condition. It is a great family activity, it is lots of fun and provides an opportunity to make new friends from all over. In Volksmarching, Everyone Is a Winner! Volksmarching is extremely popular in European countries and this popular form of leisure sports has spread to 25 countries.

We used to go Volksmarching when we were in Germany. Got a bunch of medals (everyone get a medal) but don't know what happened to them. I'll have to go look for them sometime.
