Get your walking shoes ready for a walk around the mountain as Big Spring State Park is having their bi-annual Walk at Big Spring State Park, March 10 at 8:30 a.m.
The walk is hosted by Midland's Walkabout Volkssport Club, which is a nonprofit organization that enjoys being active with individuals who also enjoy physical outdoor activities and to promote good-times, fun, fitness and friendship through non-competitive walking, biking and swimming events.
“Volkssporting actually began in German, and came to the US back in 1976.” said Sammy Hunnicutt, HSE Coordinator. ”The Midland Walkabout Club is just one of many walking clubs, over two hundred fifty in fact, throughout the US, there is even an International Volkssporting Association.” The Midland Walkabout Club came into being in 2001, and has been active ever since.
