Puyallup Farmers Market Walk

This is a traditional 5K or 10K volksmarch in downtown Puyallup. It starts at a booth at the Puyallup Farmers Market. There will be a couple of "nice" hills for the 10K walkers. You can start the walk anytime between 8 am to 1 pm. There will be a group walk at 10 am.

    What is "Volksmarch"??

    May 11, 2013

    • Carolyn W.

      Christina, a volksmarch is a walk that is usually 5K or 10K in length and the route has been set up by a club. If is a weekend walk, the route is usually marked with arrows, ribbons, and/ chalk markings. Most of the walks on this meetup.com site are volksmarches but they are year-round routes that start at a business and you walk them using a map. Check out www.ava.org, our national website, and click on "About us". They do a good job of explaining volkssporting.

      Thanks Carolyn!! Now I am "In the Know"

    We are sorry about the railroad crossing closure today. Yesterday afternoon when we marked the trail there was no indication that they would be working on the railroad crossing today. No walker said anything and we didn't realize there was a problem until 11 am. At that point we made adjustments to the trail markings and re-routed walkers around the work site. Thanks for coming today and your patience.

    Joan, Diane, Sharon,
    Our Daffodil canopy/registration for the walk on Saturday at the Farmer's Market will be in Pioneer Park (the Farmer's Market). We will be over on the library side, down near the coffee shop on Pioneer. When you register, we will explain the markings and give you a map.
    See you at 8 am.
    Carolyn

    The time for the Friendship/Group walk is 10 a.m. You will need to get there a little before that for registration. If you don't want to walk with the group, you can register and walk anytime between 8 am to Noon.
