Don’t run (and don’t laugh): The little-known history of racewalking

Apologies for the lack of posts recently. As some folk know I’m a bit upside down due to family illness. Anyway I hope to do a catch up post over the weekend. In the meantime here’s a link to a short, useful piece on our sport prompted by the presence of the Olympic Games.

    Thanks Tony, I thought you might be interested in the article I have linked below. It by one of the competitors at the Redcar 100 mile – he tells how he walked 70 miles to the race from Leeds, the day before. It was all part of his prep for a 6 day race. Cheers, Roy http://richardwalkslondon.com/2016-uk-centurions-race-the-redcar-blast/
