The Empire State Capital Volkssporters (ESCV) were formed
in 1987 in Albany, New York to foster fun and
companionship in walking and to promote Volkssport events.
Our walks are fun events where all who participate are
winners. Our goal is to get outdoors, exercise without
competition, meet new friends, and enjoy the fresh air.
Volkssports events are non-competitive and open to the
public. Credit walkers: $3.00 fee, NON-IVV walkers: $2.00.
The AVA book "Starting Point" lists the YRE and Seasonal
event start points held all over the United States. The
book also explains the AVA record keeping and award
system. The AVA publishes an informative bimonthly
newspaper "The American Wanderer" which lists members'
event and distance milestones along with walking articles
and upcoming walks in the US.
Dues are due
on the first of the year.
Annual Dues: $10 single: $18 Family.
