For those in the States, the American Volkssport Association has a listing of clubs and both weekend ("Traditional") or year-round/seasonal events of 5k/10ks for walking, jogging, or running, as well as biking, swimming, and boating.  Most year-round or seasonal events are urban trails.


Internationally, similar clubs and walks can be found on the Internationaler Volkssportverband (IVV) website.
