    Contact an experienced running and racewalking coach available for all your fitness needs. I have been an active running and racewalking athlete for over 15 years, having competed in numerous national championships. Coaching for over 7 years, I have helped lead individuals and teams to national championships. Currently the head coach and race director for Parkside Athletic Club, a well-known running and racewalking club in southeastern Wisconsin, in the Midwest, and around the country.

    Meeting weekly, in the Milwaukee area, the club members gather together for a quality workout under my guidance.

      I really want to make a snarky comment about both racewalking and spam, but I'm working on being more mellow and laid back.

          Is racewalking akin to Nordic walking?  I ran a marathon in Austria and lol'ed at people 'running' the race with ski poles. Of course I'm unfamiliar with it so maybe it really is athletic?

            So, coach, you're gonna pay Eric for the advertising space on the site, right? Because otherwise that makes you a freeloading, spamming nitwit.

              No.

              Racewalking is walking at hyper speeds, faster than a lot of runners run. It takes tremendous technique. The rule is that you must have 1 foot on the ground at all times...that's what makes it walking rather than running.

              I've done my best to live the right way; I get up every morning and go to work each day...

                So it's a real thing? With rules?  This is the first I've heard of it. I was thinking it was a variation of run/walk etc.  Whats a world class race walker cover a mile in?

                  Google is your friend...  a quick search shows the winner of the 2012 Olympic 50K race walk clocked 3hr35min, which is sub 7:00 min/miles for 50K.  At the non-Olympic level, I've seen race results in local races for race walkers doing 11:00 min splits in half marathon.

                    You're joking? Right?

                     

                    It's an Olympic sport. There are 20km and 50km distances. I believe the world record for 50km is 3:34:14.

                        Watching one of the Olympic races last summer it was easy to pause the TV and catch these "walkers" mid air all the time.

                         

                        Cheaters!!!

                          Big whoop, so is ping pong, curling and snowboard super pipe. And wrestling is not, anymore.

                              For some reason I love to watch women's curling. Must be the sweeping. If only they could do it while barefooted.
