Midland Walkabout Volkssport Club



You'll see Midland and West Texas in a whole new way!


Club members walk 2,3,4, or even 5 times a week on their own on in small groups.  As a reward for all this hard work they get together (usually on the third Saturday morning of each month) for a Group Fun Walk.  They walk 10K (about 6 miles) in about 2 hours and then all go to breakfast (brunch) together.  These walks are usually in the area (Midland, Odessa, Big Spring, Andrews)


Members also annually take part in community and charity events such as picking up trash in Windland Park for KMB. They collect aluminum cans as a continual club fund-raising and clean-up campaign!


Some members travel to events throughout Texas, New Mexico.  A few have even participated in events as far away as California, Canada, & Ireland.


All volkssport events  are non-competitive (slow & easy), but members may earn patches or medals from AVA (American Volkssport Association) for completeing certain events or  significant distance totals.


Midland Walkabout Volkssport Club is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

How it began...

The American Volkssport Association (AVA) began in Fredericksburg, TX, as part of that city's bicentennical program in 1976. Kenn Knopp was responsible for bringing Volkssporting to the U.S. from Europe. Jack Rogers, a member of the AVA in Fredericksburg since 1980, moved to Midland in December 2000. Not finding an AVA club, he called an organizational meeting in February, 2001. The Midland Walkabout Club was chartered in April 2001. The club is governed by officers all elected annually.
