Year Round Events

YREs are “go at your own pace” walks in the Tampa Bay area. Review our YRE flyer for complete information.


  • Ask for walk box at start. Please be considerate of staff and patrons at host location.
  • Register, sign waiver and use maps/start cards to return at finish.

You can earn IVV distance and event credit every time you complete the course. Insert pages are available.

Walk Fees

  • If you are walking for volkssport (IVV) credit, fee is $3 each day you do the event. You may do the walk twice for distance credit for the same fee on the same day (not Tampa 20K).
  • If you don’t want volkssport credit, the non-IVV fee is $2.
  • Children under 12 walk for free.

Please pay by check made out to Suncoast Sandpipers Volkssport Club. If you can’t pay by check, send payment to club address. Leaving cash puts hosts and club at risk for theft.

The Safety Harbor Grill & Bar has unexpectedly closed. We are pursuing a new start point. If you would like to do the walk, contact the club at to arrange for waiver-signing, payment, and transmission of walk directions.
