The Volkssport World is one of fun and friendship with the added benefits of good health and physical fitness. Safe exercise in a non-competitive environment is our goal. The participant chooses the sport, the distance, and the pace.

IVV events, called 'volkssports', are for all people, and everyone is welcome.

IVV members around the world organize thousands of volkssport events each year for people of all ages and abilities. For more information, please read through our website or contact us.
