Volkssport Roadrunners to host walk Feb. 13


The Volkssport Roadrunner group will host a walk on Feb. 13. It will begin in front of the Chamber of Commerce/Old Jail Museum at 9 a.m. The fee is $3 for all participants. For more information about the event or the group, please contact Mrs. Ellen Ott at (210) 723-8574 or EllenOtt@SBCGLobal.net. Volkssporting started in Germany and, simply defined, is a personal fitness sport and recreation program offering noncompetitive walks, hikes, bike rides, swims, and in some regions cross-country skiing. You may choose your time to start within the start/finish “window” and participate in the sport at your own pace. Two participants log their times in the photo above. Walking – also called “volksmarching” – is the most popular of all the volkssporting activities. (Contributed Photo)
