  • Can be done for free, and

  • Are linked to a low-cost incentive program.

Some events:

  • Are accessible to families with strollers,

  • Are wheelchair friendly, and

  • Allow pets.

We do offer events open only to dues-paying members. 


Our club is a great way to meet other active walkers in the area! 

Come and walk with us.  A list of upcoming walks is listed on the Calendar of Events page.  Plus, locations of all our "Walk Boxes" in the area.

Congratulations to our club members, who finished the club challenge and walked 1,049 minutes in February and March.

AVA member clubs are non-profit associations.  The clubs promote fun, fitness, and friendship. 

Most of our ETW AVA-sanctioned walks are 5 or 10 kilometers (3.1 or 6.2 miles) and usually held on Saturday mornings.  Club members are encouraged to walk at other times using maps stored in "Walk Boxes" at various locations in eastern Tennessee, and while traveling throughout the USA.
