Who We Are

brendaA Message from Brenda Dudfield,  President - Volkssport Association of British Columbia

Welcome to the this website, which gives details of all the Events and Permanent Trails in 2017 in British Columbia.  I encourage you to take advantage of the offerings, and to see how many you can attend during the year.

 The Annual General Meeting of the Volkssporting Association of BC will be held in Victoria on Sunday March 19, at 1:30 pm following the walk, which starts at the Crystal Pool on Quadra Street.  Lunch will be provided for those in attendance.  Click here for more information.

 The big festival this year is the Phoenix Festival, April 21 – 23 in the Victoria suburb of Saanich centred out of the Greek Community Centre.  Come and enjoy the walks, camaraderie of fellow walkers and especially the Greek food – and lots of it!  Another International Event will be held either side of two borders crossings with Washington State – Point Roberts and Tsawwassen and South Surrey/White Rock and Blaine.  This is a joint venture with the NW Tulip Trekkers over the weekend of September 9 and 10.  There will probably be group Permanent Trail walks on the Friday and Monday.  More details will be on the websites.

During 2017 there will be a Special Programme to celebrate Canada’s 150th and the CVF’s 30th Anniversaries, whereby a walker has to walk 150 km and/or do 30 events.  You will receive a Certificate for your accomplishments.  There is also a Go for 30, or more, Challenge with a Canadian Theme, for both individuals and Clubs.  Details of all the Special Walking Programmes are on the 'Wjat is Volkssport' page and on the website.

 As usual thanks go to all the Volunteers who make Volkssporting what it is, for planning routes, hosting the walks, organizing the schedules and activities for the Clubs.  Without you we wouldn’t have Fun, Fitness or Friendship.

Keep walking with CVF.
