The Sandpipers are part of the American Volkssport Association. The term “volkssport” is German for “sport of the people”. Volkssport describes family-oriented, amateur athletic events. They are casual, though well-organized adventures in health, recreation, fellowship and fun.
Participants come from the general public and all are welcome to participate. All events are open to everyone. We encourage all to participate to the best of their ability. Pets are allowed at most outdoor events.
Most Volkssport events are walks of 5 or 10 kilometers (3.1 or 6.2 miles). Most events are accessible to families with strollers, and many are wheelchair friendly. The basic walk fee is $2. All events are eligible for IVV achievement awards for an additional $1. Other awards include colorful pins and patches.
