The Emerald City Wanderers
Seattle, Washington

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:
