Months of quarantine have you feeling cooped up? Ready to celebrate the warming weather with a nice stroll? Join us for a relaxed walk through scenic Harpers Ferry and Bolivar on April 18! Volksmarch, or people’s march, is a fun European tradition of non-competitive, social, fitness walking. You can participate in a 5K walk through Bolivar, a 5K walk through Harpers Ferry or combine both for a 10K walk. You can join a guided walk with some historical points of interest or set out on your own socially-distanced, self-paced walk.

And what’s a Volksmarch without a chance to unwind afterwards with good food and good company at a Volksfest? It’s a great incentive to get in your steps! When you complete your walk, we’ll have music, a cash bar and an assortment of hearty soups and fresh bread waiting for you at the finish line, all while observing appropriate social distancing precautions.

The Volksmarch is an annual fund-raiser for the Foundation conducted in association with the American Volksport Association. Proceeds will be used in the restoration of the historic First Zion Baptist Church as a secular community resource.   Harpers Ferry guided walk begins at 1:30 PM and Bolivar guided walk begins at 3:30 PM.  Get your advance tickets online today!
