The Falcon Wanderers Volksmarch Club is hosting a 5 kilometer (3.1 miles) or 12 kilometer (7.4 miles) volksmarch (a non-competitive walking event) on Saturday, August 23rd, 2014. The start/finish location for the walk is at the Garden Ranch YMCA, 2380 Montebello Drive West, Colorado Springs, CO.
Both walks begin at the YMCA and pass through Garden Ranch and University Park. Pulpit Rock Open Space is visited on the 12K walk. The walks are on city streets, sidewalks and some dirt trails. The 5K is rated 2A and the 12K is rated 2B. Large wheeled strollers can complete the courses. Wheelchairs are not recommended due to the dirt trails. Bring your favorite walking companion, whether 2 legged or 4 legged. Pets must be leashed! Pet owners are responsible for picking up after their pets. Please, no pets inside the YMCA building. Restrooms are available at the YMCA and at a convenience store on the 12K route.
