Tip of the Week

Two major areas of concern while race walking involve one's stride and posture. Having the correct stride while race walking is essential, since this is what mainly separates the sport from running. While running, there is a point every stride when the runner has both feet off the ground. In race walking, the racer is required to have one foot remain in contact with the ground at all times. Another one of the many race walking techniques to be mindlful of is posture. Leaning too far forward, or too far backward, can slow a racer down, and can lead to poor form, which, in turn, can lead to injury.
