It’s not too early to put the 2023 IVV Olympiad and IML Texas Trail Roundup Walking Festival on your calendar and sign up for the walks. The IVV Olympiad walks and the IML walks will occur back-to-back in San Antonio in February, 2023.
The IVV Olympiad events will be from February 19th through the 23rd (Sunday – Thursday), and the IML Texas Trail Roundup events will be February 24th through the 26th (Friday – Sunday). That’s eight days of walking events.
Walkers will be coming from around the country and the world for this festival. This is actually the first time that the IVV Olympiad is taking place in the United States, so we’re breaking new ground here!
The first IML walks in the United States took place in February of 2020 in San Antonio. The photo of the Tower of the Americas above was taken at the IML Texas Trail Roundup this past February. It was a fun event with several nice walks to enjoy.
The website for the 2023 festival is https://ivvolympiad2023.org, and online registration is open. A lot of work has been done to make this a memorable and special event, and more plans are still in the works. You can go ahead and register for the walks and special events on the website, and you can also sign up to volunteer if you’d like to help out.
Please check the festival website over the next several months for more details, and we’ll be sharing more news on our Colorado River Walkers website, too. We’re looking forward to it!
