The Volkssport Association of British Columbia (VABC) serves to unify the BC volkssport clubs and to promote their mutual cooperation, all within the Canadian Volkssport Federation (CVF). We are a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting healthy, non-competitive volkssport activities for people of all ages throughout the province. Although volkssporting activities include walking, swimming, cross-country skiing and cycling, walking events are the most popular among volkssporters in BC.

There are seven clubs in British Columbia, offering a wide variety of walks.  Walks include parks, forests,  urban streets and trails, and glorious lake and ocean views. In addition, VABC is responsible for over 30 other walks spread throughout the province. We invite walkers of all ages to join us on a walk. New members are welcome, but membership is not mandatory in order to join one of our walks. We'd love to meet you! And your first five walks are free! After that the cost is just $1 or $2 per walk.
