KUDOS to our members! 

AVA member clubs are non-profit associations.  The clubs promote fun, fitness, and friendship. 

Most of our ETW AVA-sanctioned walks are 5 or 10 kilometers (3.1 or 6.2 miles) and usually held on Saturday mornings.  Club members are encouraged to walk at other times using maps stored in "Walk Boxes" at various locations in eastern Tennessee, and while traveling throughout the USA.
