The Trekkers Volkssport Club is a non-profit organization providing its members and other interested individuals with an opportunity to enjoy Volkssporting activities. The Trekkers are the second oldest club in Alberta, their first meeting was held on 2 March 1985 and co-sponsored the CVF Convention in April with the VAA the same year.
 
 
 
  
 
 The Trekkers are blessed to have 103 active members. Approximately 1/3 are from St Albert, 1/3 from Edmonton and 1/3 from other communities surrounding Edmonton. To become a member simply print a copy of our membership application and mail it to our club address on the form.
 
 The Trekkers organize event walks, guided walks and permanent trail events in Edmonton and adjacent municipalities. The club cooperates with the other Volkssport clubs in Alberta to develop a schedule of walks for the whole the year.

 
 
 
 
In addition to walking the club holds potlucks, brunches, BBQ's and picnics which adds to the friendship aspect of the activity.
            
 

 
Most members participate in the IVV "Awards" program which entails recording, in an IVV booklet, the events and distances walked. Certificates are awarded following completion of progress levels of achievement. Participants walk for fun, fitness and friendship at their own pace in a non-competitive environment. 
 
 

The Trekkers produce a newsletter, it is distributed to their members.
