For club walks, you can either walk a 5K (3.1 miles) or a 10K (6.2 miles).  The "walk alert" will provide the different start times.

There are three "types" of walks—Fun, Club, and Traditional Event:

1.   The Fun Walk is a walk for fun, and will not garner AVA/IVV credit.  It may be of any distance the walk leader chooses, and there is no fee.

2.   A Club Walk is a walk done as a club activity using an YRE (Year Round Event) as the walk route.  Those who are collecting AVA/IVV stamps in their books can get credit for these walks for a $3.00 fee.

For YREs, you can walk it at any time and earn AVA credit for your books.   Just go to the walk box, pick up a map, fill out all the paperwork, stamp your books, do the walk, then mail your check in the envelope provided.

Walk boxes are located in Alcoa, Clinton, Ft. Loudoun, Gatlinburg, Knoxville, Maryville, Oak Ridge, Rogersville, and Townsend.  Walks in Tennessee can be found at http://www.ava.org/ava_search.asp.

3.   The Traditional Event is a special walk set up as a one-day event for AVA/IVV credit.  The fee is $3.00 to stamp your books, and there may be an additional "optional" fee for a patch or a lapel pin.
