The Central ​Coast Beach Boardwalkers are partnering with the City of Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department to host the first-ever Santa Maria Style Volksmarch! This non-competitive group walk is appropriate for all ages and ability levels, and is the culminating event of the City's exciting Active Aging Week.

This AVA sanctioned Traditional Event offers a 5K walk through beautiful residential areas, finishing up on the Preisker Park path, while the 10K continues on a nature adventure along the Santa Maria Levee. If those distances are a bit intimidating, we are even offering a 2.5K fun walk within Preisker Park. The 10K is rated a 2A for the dirt path, the others are an easier 1A. Dogs are welcome with leash and cleanup.

Advance registration is recommended here:

This is a free fun walk, but just $6 will get you AVA volksmarching credit and the first-ever commemorative A-Award, a stylish pin featuring images of our beautiful town.

On-site registration is open from 8:00 am to 11:00 am. Start the walk any time you'd like, but you must check back in at the registration table by 2:00 pm. As an extra way to add FUN to your fitness and friendship, all participants will receive a discount coupon to Boomers Amusement Center across the street!
