Cavalier Volkssporting Club

The Cavalier Volkssporting Club was established in October 2010 and operates as a non-profit under the University of Virginia Intramural-Recreational Sports Department. Due to the unique club structure we do not have an open membership, rather establish officers from within the IM-Rec Sports Department. Our first volkswalk was held on Grounds at UVA in conjunction with the inauguration of UVA’s eighth President, Teresa A. Sullivan, on April 2011.

We hosted the second annual Volkswalk in honor of Thomas Jefferson’s birthday, the founder of UVA, on April 15, 2012. We were fortunate to work with the Thomas Jefferson Foundation and Michie Tavern to bring a unique setting to the volkswalking community. Participants were able to access Monticello Mountain and Grounds as well as the Saunders-Monticello Trail as part of our event.

2013 will be a new step in the Cavalier Volkssporting Club history as we will be partnering with the University of Virginia Foundation and will be hosting our next volkswalk at Morven. This stunning estate in eastern Albemarle County was gifted to the University of Virginia Foundation in 2001 by John W. Kluge for educational and charitable purposes. We will be touring the grounds of this almost 3,000 acre farm on April 14, 2013.
