ATTLEBORO - The Walk 'n Mass Volkssport Club invites walkers to participate in either a 5k or 10k (3.1 or 6.2 mile) walk in Attleboro, Mass. on Saturday, Dec. 7.

The starting point is the National Shrine of Our Lady of LaSalette on Park Street. Registration is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The 10k route commences at the shrine and goes through a short path in woods then on to paved road and sidewalks. The 5k route requires a short drive to the Attleboro Industrial Museum where the trail begins.

The walk routes traverse town streets passing many historic sites and homes. Both walk routes pass the Capron Zoo and are on paved sidewalks, and a relatively flat unpaved walk path, suitable for strollers but not for wheelchairs. Dogs are not allowed in the Capron Zoo. Leashed pets are welcome on the walk but clean-up laws apply.

The walk is sponsored by the Walk 'n Mass Volkssport Club. Volkssporting events promote fun, fitness and friendship by providing non-competitive walking and other free sporting events.
