Volksmarch | Thomas Nelson Community College


Thomas Nelson Community is proud to partner with Peninsula Pathfinders to host the Veterans Day Volksmarch 2020.


Wednesday, November 11, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Sandy Bottom Nature Park - 1255 Big Bethel Road, Hampton, VA 23666


A Volksmarch is a non-competitive outdoor event where a participant follows a marked trail at his/her own pace, stopping at points for a "control stamp," rest, and refreshments.  Volksmarches are aimed at getting all people, regardless of age, out-of-doors to exercise non-competitively. 


Thomas Nelson's Veteran's Day Volksmarch will benefit scholarships for military dependents and a military charity.

This event includes a 10k, 5k, a 1-mile fun walk, and a virtual walk.

Participants can start the walk anytime between 9 a.m and 1 p.m. and have until 4 p.m. to finish the course.

Please join us for this fun community event as we take time to fellowship with the community, honor our Veterans, and pave a way for the future of our military and their families. 

Participants can walk the course for free.  If you’re an active Volksmarcher, you can have your mileage logged for a $3 fee.  Walkers can purchase a Thomas Nelson Volksmarch T-shirt (and donate to our scholarship fund) by paying a $20 registration fee.
