‘Walking is a form of exercise that can significantly improve your physical and mental health. Not only can it extend your life and prevent disease, but it can also boost your energy and mood.

In addition, studies show that if you walk regularly and quickly enough, it could be the only aerobic exercise you need to keep your heart and lungs healthy.

It’s also accessible, easy, and free. So if you’re one of the 47% of adults in the US who don’t meet the CDC’s Physical Activity Guidelines for aerobic activity, then walking is a habit worth pursuing and keeping.’

How to race walk (how to get started)




Do you want to tone more muscles, burn more calories per mile, and win competitions? Racewalking may be just the sport for you. See how you can achieve high speeds without breaking into a run.

Racewalking vs. Speedwalking
Racewalking is not just walking fast or speedwalking. Although a good fast walking technique borrows posture and arm motion from racewalking, it doesn’t use the straight leg technique that gives racewalking its hip rotation.

You can use the racewalking technique to walk faster in events such as 5K charity runs and half-marathons, even beating many runners to the finish line. But racewalking is its own competitive sport as well.
