Ohio Race Walker has been the longest continuous race walking publication in America. Going strong since March of 1965, it was founded by Jack Blackburn and Jack Mortland.

Eventually, Ohio Race Walker became a one man show, with Mortland taking the reins solo. With a subscription rate of 700 at its peak in the late 80s, the magazine today maintains a dedicated 300+ race walkers who look forwarding to receiving it every month.

The newsletter contains U.S. and international race results, statistics, stories on race walking, and schedules of races throughout the U.S., as well as an interesting perspective of happenings in our sport 5, 10, 15, and 20 years ago.

Ohio Race Walker can be ordered for $12/year within the U.S. and $15/year outside the U.S. at:
