Race Walking is a healthy sport, suitable for all ages and initial levels of fitness.
It has all the cardiovascular benefits of running or jogging with very few of the risks of joint and muscle injury.
There are a few specifically race walking clubs but most walkers belong to general athletic clubs.
Don't be alarmed by the thought of athleticism; it's not that fierce!
You can become involved in race walking without competing – or even walking!
We welcome judges, officials, coaches and assistants as well.
Whatever your level of ability, expertise or enthusiasm, there is a place for you in race walking.
