Walkers can do either a 6 or a 11K walk This is a pleasant walk along the streets and parks of historic Auburn, passing beautiful homes and enjoying the classic automobiles. After the walk you may see the famous "Parade of Classics" leaving Eckhart Park and enjoy the annual Auburn, Cord, and Duesenburg (ACD) Festival You may start the walk anytime between 8:00 AM and 11:00 AM. There will be a group walk at 9:00 AM You can walk at your pace and the idea is to enjoy the (hopefully) nice early spring weather, get some exercise and meet new people. A 6K walk is about 4 miles and a 11K walk is approximately 7 miles. There is no problem if you walk a shorter (or longer) distance. It will speed up the registration process (but is not necessary), if you bring two peel-off address labels See AVA website for details at http://clubs.ava.org/gen3/data/event_details.asp?eventid=113899
