35th Anniversary Walk in Priest Point Park
Join the Capitol Volkssport Club for their 35th Anniversary Walk. Cake and coffee will be served after the walk. There are both 10k (6.2 miles) and 5k (3.1 miles) walks. Both walks have fairly flat terrain and are on sidewalks and tree-root and rock trails. The 10K walk goes through four city parks. This is a mapped walk with directions, so you can start the walk anytime between 10 am and 1 pm. However, you must finish the walk by 4 pm. To walk with a group, plan to be there before 10 am, since 10 am is when the majority of walkers start walking. This Meetup is hosted by the Capitol Volkssport Club of Olympia. Everyone is welcome, but everyone must sign the waiver to participate. No fee is required to walk, however for those seeking Volkssport credit, IVV/AVA credit is available at the customary fee.

What we're about

We are a group of friendly people doing weekly 10k (6.2 mile) walks all around the south sound. We walk for fitness, so these are not strolls. Expect to finish walks within 2 1/2 hours, depending on stops. All walks are American Volkssport Association (AVA) sanctioned. Everyone is welcome to join us. All walks are free, or you can choose to pay for AVA credit stamps. Find out more about the Washington State Assocation at or the AVA at

Just show up and be ready to walk at the posted time. We need to register to each walk at the start location, so allow for that. It's important to join the group. Otherwise, you won't get reminders or changes and cancellations.

There are Monday, Wednesday and Thursday walks every. Wintertime you'll see some cancellations that are weather dependent. You may also see some Tuesday -- late afternoons into evening as days grow longer. There will be weekend walks with a group walk start time when the one of our clubs is putting on a traditional, staffed event.

Most all walks are dog friendly (with leash and cleanup, of course,) unless it's through a wildlife area. We'll say in the directions.

If you love to walk, you'll love to walk with us.
