Need more motivation?

The AVA gives recognition for distance and for number of events completed.  You'll receive a certificate, an award, and you'll be recognized in the The American Wanderer quarterly newsletter.

You earn your first event awards when you complete 10 events, and your first distance award at 500 kilometers. 

The upper limits for awards is 3000 events and 35000 kilometers.

To receive your award, follow the instructions on the back of your completed book and send in to AVA headquarters.

Below are a few examples of awards. If you'd like to see all the possible awards, see the Sacramento Walking Sticks website.
