Would you like to be part of the club? Help us spread the word about walking and Volkssports? Help with our walks that give people a chance to walk for fun and fitness, with some fellowship thrown in? Volunteer in another capacity?
If you live in or near Loudoun County and get satisfaction from helping fellow walkers and volkssporters, we could be the club for you.
All it takes to join is completing a one-page application and snail mailing it to us. If you include a tax-deductible contribution, you become a voting member for one year.
Don't forget about our six self-service events that you can walk almost every day of the year.

Welcome to our website. If you live and walk in Loudoun County, we want this to become your go-to site for information.
Watch for updates to the site as we expand our content to include more general walking, volkssport, walking-related fitness and health information, a Facebook page, a Blog, more photos, etc.
If you have a comment, e.g., additional content you'd like to see or a not-for-profit walking-related activity in the county to publicize (fundraising "cause" walks will be considered on a case-by-case basis), please contact us.

Next Open House-- October 18th
Learn about walking opportunities in the county, the club's three upcoming walks, and more when we get together at the Purcellvlle Library, 220 E. Main St, on Tuesday, October 18, 7:30 pm. Too far away? We're planning open houses in Ashburn and Leesburg as soon as we can schedule a room at those libraries.
There will be information about volkssports, a fun and friendly way to get fit, if you are new and/or curious.
There also will be light refreshments.
The club sponsors two more walks this fall. Check out details for the events on October 1 in Boyce, and November 11 in Leesburg (walk will be in the afternoon; there will be a guided bike in the morning).
