Who We Are

LCVA is a Volkssport Association

In 2020 we are celebrating our 35th year of hosting volkssporting events in Eastern Washington and the Idaho Panhandle.  We are members of the Evergreen State Volkssporting Association (ESVA), American Volkssport Association (AVA) (doing business as America's Walking Club) and the IVV (International Sport of the People). We have sanctioned walks and bikes that allow participants to enjoy the beauty and history of the Inland Northwest.

What is a volkssporting event?

Our outings are a time for those in attendance to have fun, friendship and fitness in a non-competitive setting where all who take part are winners. We sanction thee types of events in the INW: traditional events, year round events and seasonal events. Traditional events are offered for a specific time, usually one day or a weekend. Year Round Events and Seasonal Events are available daily during daylight hours except when the start point is closed. Year Round walks are open daily whereas Seasonal Events are offered for a shorter period of time. Ours are offered from April 1-September 30.

Your Enjoyment is Our Goal
