PINKERTON ACADEMY INDOOR TRACK, DERRY New Hampshire
An introduction to the Race Walking, the Olympic event – Come learn about this unique event
The clinic is geared toward youth through high school, but is open to all ages
Race Walking has been part of the Olympics since 1908, and is a world championship event
Though not a high school event in most states, race walking competition is held at the National
Scholastic championship meets, in youth athletics Junior Olympics, at some high schools, and in
youth and open track and field meets in indoor and outdoor competitions
Youth age 14 and under generally race 800 to 3000 meters, high schoolers race 1 mile to 3000
meters, with the mile being the most popular distance.
It’s a low impact event – a good running alternative for those with knee or back programs – but one
that requires overall fitness and endurance, as well as the skill to maintain proper technique
The focus of this clinic is on basic technique and drills to become a successful walker
There is no charge for the clinic!
