Enjoy walking with a group that enjoys walking

  Walk with people who enjoy walking. Set a pace which allows you to enjoy the scenery. Our 5 and 10 kilometer walks are in areas of historical interest or scenic beauty such as parks and in conjunction with events of community interest. The Winston Wanderers Walking Club is located in the Piedmont of North Carolina, including Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point.  The club is affiliated with The Tarheel State Walkers VolksSports Association (TSWVA), The American VolksSports Association (AVA), and The International Federation of Popular Sports (IVV). We hold weekend walks in the Central North Carolina area and have permanent trails located throughout the state.
