The Emerald City Wanderers
We are a walking club, associated with America’s Walking Club, also known as the American Volkssport Association. We offer fun, fitness, and friendship through non-competitive walking events. We are known as the Holiday Club because we sponsor organized events on and around holidays – New Year’s Eve and Day, Easter, Independence Day, Labor Day, and Halloween. And we host many year-round-events in Seattle.
Join us for our next event:
