All ages welcome. Instruction for beginners with regular coached workouts.
The Southern Cal Walkers is a club for all ages. Some members racewalk for fitness enjoying the workouts and camaraderie. Others are recreational competitors and seek to increase their speed to win medals in the local Grand Prix Racewalk Series and community events. Several are ranked in national and international masters competition.
Weekly workouts are on Saturday mornings 7:00 to 8:15 at the Caltch track in Pasadena. We spend 15 minutes doing warmup drills that are uniquely oriented to conditioning the specific muscles used in racewalking Beginning instruction is always available with Elaine Ward along with programmed workouts lead by Carl Acosta. We all go to breakfast afterward for socializing.
Club membership is $35 a year and includes a regular club bulletin, discounts on shoes at a local sports store, weekly technique coaching, personal workout schedules for serious competitors and 3 or 4 post race parties a year at a members home.
