Race Walking in Western New York

After more than 300 years as a sport, and more than 90 years as an Olympic event, racewalking is enjoying a surge of popularity in the United States. Persons of all ages, sizes and levels of fitness are beginning to realize the potential value of using racewalking as a central part of their fitness program.

The WNY area is fast becoming one of the major centers of racewalking in New York State. It is home to dozens of racewalkers who can be seen in neighborhoods and in local running and walking races. Some enjoy the competitive sport of racewalking; others simply appreciate the value of using racewalking techniques in their ongoing fitness program.

Whether you are interested in basic fitness, setting world records or something in between, try racewalking!
