PurposeTo promote fitness, good health, and friendship through walking and other volkssporting events.
ServiceVolkssporting events are walking, biking, swimming, and cross-country skiing. All except cross-country skiing have been conducted by the Piedmont Pacers. The primary events are walking events known as Volksmarches. A volksmarch or people's walk is an organized walk through towns, countrysides, and/or wooded areas where participants may walk, jog, or run at their own pace. The events are designed to appeal to people of all ages and are not a contest of speed or endurance. The regular Piedmont Pacers Volksmarch Club of Carroll County Maryland meets on the second Monday of each month at 7:30PM at Ascension Episcopal Church, 23 N. Court Street in Westminster, MD. (Enter at the double red doors.) We are always looking for new members and hope that you will consider this an invitation to join us. We don't hold meetings in the months of July or August.
