A Volkssport Event is an organized non-competitive walk, bike ride, swim or cross-country ski through a scenic area over a pre-determined route designed for people of all ages. Participants travel at their own pace and several distances are usually available. Volkssports are ideal activities for the entire family, and also a great way to meet new friends.

Dartmouth Volksmarch Club is a non profit organization.  Membership fee is $15.00 annually per person. There is a nominal charge for each walk to cover the cost of liability insurance and CVF sanction fees; this charge is subject to review by members at Annual General Meetings. New participants are entitled to 5 free IVV stamps. Walks are typically 10KM long. Check the 2016 schedule  for individual events distance and trail ratings.
