Agate Fossil Beds Hosting Regional Volksmarch

The Northwest Nebraska Trails Association and several other partners will bring the third annual Northwest Nebraska Volksmarch to Agate Fossil Beds National Monument on Saturday, May 18th, with 5K and 10K walking options available starting at the visitor center.

Volksmarches, a non-competitive form of fitness walks, became popular in Europe in the 1960s.

Pre-registration for the Northwest Nebraska Volksmarch is not required but is open at Enter Harrison as the starting city to navigate to the Northwest Nebraska Volksmarch page. Registration will also be available the day of the walk.

The cost to walk is $4 per person; children in strollers are free. Participants can begin their volksmarch anytime between 8-11a.m. and must report back in by 2p.m.
