Volkssporting is an adventure in fun, fitness, and friendship, featuring non-competitive walking, cycling, swimming, cross-country skiing and other sporting events.  The Emerald City Wanderers is a volkssporting club devoted to hosting  events on and around holidays – New Year’s, Easter, Independence Day, Labor Day and Halloween.  We’d love to have you join our club and enjoy the camaraderie and good times associated with our events.
