None of the towns are individually large enough to have a safe and interesting 10K Volksmarch. Walks of distances from 3K to 5K will be provided in Spring Mills, Coburn, Millheim, Madisonburg, and Centre Hall. Participants can walk any event they choose and take IVV distance credit for the distance walked. The AVA insurance policy does not cover participants while they are driving between towns. Walks are on sidewalks, road shoulders, and one uses a future rail trail.
