Who We Are

brendaA Message from Brenda Dudfield,  President - Volkssport Association of British Columbia

This website shows the diversity of walks available within British Columbia. I trust you will use this as your 'Bible' explaining what Volkssporting is all about as well as descriptions of all the walks. 

For full schedules of when group walks are offered by each of the seven clubs, please go to their respective web sites

During 2018, Meetup accounts were set up for 5 of the clubs and, especially in the Lower Mainland area, has helped memberships grow. I hope this trend will continue into 2019 with younger members joining the fold.

 As of January 1, 2019, the charge for all VABC and CVF BC Director’s Permanent Trails (PTs) will be $2.00 per walker.

 The Annual General Meeting of the Association will be held in Nanaimo on May 11, 2019. The Phoenix Festival in Victoria and the "Walk the Island Coast to Coast" series of walks will precede this meeting. In 2018, the five day “Walk to Comox” was a lot of fun. I hope you will join us for these events in May.

Due to privacy issues, the phone numbers and addresses of the Board Members, and some clubs, have been removed, so please use email if you wish to contact them.

I wish you all a great year of walking.

In Fun, Fitness & Friendship,


VABC Executive Members
