Come Walk With Us!

Our club was formed in 1987 in Gaithersburg, Maryland by a few people who shared an interest in keeping fit through walking. We come from all over Montgomery and adjacent counties. The Seneca Valley Sugarloafers Volksmarch club is sanctioned by the American Volkssport Association, and is one of seven clubs in the Maryland Volksport Association.
