The Falcon Wanderers and the Woodland Wanderers Volksmarch Clubs are hosting a 5 kilometer (3.1 miles) or an 11 kilometer (6.8 miles) volksmarch (non-competitive walking event) on Saturday, July 19th. The start/finish location for the walk is at B&G Claim Jumper General Store, 106 N. 3rd St. in Victor, CO. You may start anytime between 9AM and Noon and finish by 3PM.
The walk will be through the historic downtown of Victor during the second day of Victor Gold Rush Days and along the trails to the mine heads. The elevation of the walk is nearly 10,000 feet above sea level. Participants not accustomed to altitude will require additional time to complete the event. The walk is “relatively” flat. The trail rating is 3B. You should carry additional water and use sunscreen liberally. Dress in layers, as Colorado weather at that altitude may change abruptly and often.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
