2013 County Seasonal Walks
April 1 through September 30
In October 1999 the Virginia Volkssport Association (VVA) held an event at Breaks Interstate Park. This event was the last one in a program where the VVA hosted an event in all counties in the state, with the exception of those counties where events were hosted by Virginia Clubs. The events are being revisited. The VVA is offering an opportunity for those who missed out the first time to come and walk and finish coloring in their "Virginia is for Volkssport Lovers" t-shirt.
Here are this year's offerings.
