2022 Sturgis Volksmarch

Community Calendar Event

Join us for the 2022 Sturgis Volksmarch on June 18th!

The 2022 Sturgis Volksmarch will take hikers on a 5k or 10k hike through the new Sturgis Trail System in Vanocker Canyon. Both routes are enjoyable, primarily-downhill hikes through the watershed area starting midway up scenic Vanocker Canyon.

A free shuttle bus will be provided by the Chamber between the registration tent at the base of the canyon, and the parking areas at the top of each route (start points). Registration takes place at this tent prior to driving to your starting point.


There is a $3 fee per hiker to help cover Volkssport Association insurance and permit costs.


Take I-90 to exit 32. Turn left onto Junction Ave (this will turn into Vanocker Canyon Road). Continue driving 1 ¾ miles south on Vanocker Canyon Road to the bumpout. There will be a registration tent with maps and further parking instructions for both 5k and 10k options. Look for Volksmarch signs.

* Please move through the registration area quickly and move vehicles to avoid congestion. *


Hikers can begin the Volksmarch anytime between 8am and 11am. All hikers must finish the hike or return to the starting point no later than 2pm. The Volkssport Association requires a fee of $3 per hiker, payable at the registration tent the day of the event. Hikers can choose to complete either a 5k or 10k option, which will both be marked.

This is a moderate-level hike; please refrain from bringing strollers or wheelchairs. Pets are allowed, but please keep them leashed. Water will be available at the registration booth, however, hikers should plan to bring a filled water bottle as well. Restrooms are not available for this hike.
