The East Tennessee Wanderers (ETW) is a club affiliated with the American Volkssport Association (AVA).  AVA at http://ava.org/ is America's Walking Club. 

Our events and activities:

  • Are non-competitive -- go at your own pace, and

  • Are linked to an incentive program.

Some events:

  • Are accessible to families with strollers,

  • Are wheelchair friendly, and

  • Allow pets.

There is a small fee of $3.00 for our walks to cover club and adminstrative costs. 

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. 

Why not join the club and become a member?  We do offer events open only to dues-paying members, such as our annual picnic party/meeting and Christmas party.

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.


Fun, Fitness Friendship & our Fourth F - FOOD!
