Congratulations!   
 
 FEES FOR THE WALKS
Anyone may participate in a volkssport event by registering at the start of the walk and paying a $2.00 fee. The $2.00 fee is waived for the first 5 walks for a new walker. After the first 5 free walks an individual may enroll in the IVV International Individual Achievement Awards program by purchasing IVV Event and Distance record books. The awards are based on a person’s progressive record of the number of events and distance in kilometres completed.  Membership in a volkssport club is not required, but encouraged. Club membership fees range from $5.00 to $15.00.

Walkers from outside Canada are advised to ensure they have out-of-the country medical coverage when doing walks in Canada.

Other additional walks, if scheduled, are published to club members by email and/or posted below. The majority of these walks are Group Permanent Trails (GPT), which uses both the route and stamp from the PT.   
 
If you want more information on either the scheduled events or GPT contact the person(s) listed beside the walks below.
