About Us

Watson Mill Bridge State Park
Southeast Striders Walking Club in Athens, Georgia, is a local affiliate of America’s Walking Club (aka American Volkssport Association).
We are a non-profit organization whose mission is to encourage everyone, regardless of level of fitness, to get out, exercise and have fun doing it.
Our Trailmasters create safe and interesting 5 and 10 kilometer walk events in and around Athens. Our motto is “Fun, Fitness and Friendship”.
Annual Club Membership is $15 for an individual and $25 for a household. Our AVA sanctioned 5k and 10k walks are usually held on Saturdays and are non-competitive. However, we do encourage members to keep personal achievement records in AVA Distance and AVA Event books to track their walking progress. AVA sanctioned walk fees are $4.  Our walking activities are open to everyone.  For more information about America’s Walking Club and Southeast Striders, please click on the following link to our FAQs:

And Friendship!
