Volkssporting Facts and Figures

  •  More than 6 million people have participated in American Volkssporting since 1990.
  •  The average volkssporter is a “Baby Boomer” in his or her mid-fifties.
  •  The ratio of female to male participants is about 60 to 40 percent.
  •  It is not uncommon to find two or three generations of a family at AVA  events.  Adults with children participate as a family, while young adults enjoy longer hikes over greater distances.

All AVA events are listed on AVA’s website at www.ava.org; each attracts hundreds of participants.
