Racewalking Weekend

Do you want to learn to Racewalk? Or to Racewalk Faster?

Racewalking logoJoin U.S. National Racewalk Team member and fourteen time U.S. National Champion Dave McGovern for this unique racewalking event, March 8 - 10, 2013.

Participants will learn techniques used by our elite walkers at the U.S. Olympic Training Centers to help you to racewalk faster and more efficiently with fewer injuries. And if you don’t race, these techniques can help you to lose weight, get fit and feel great!


Participants will benefit from lectures on modern racewalk technique featuring video from recent Olympic and World Championship competitions, individual video-taped technique analysis, and lectures on race preparation, racing strategy, and proper training methods for racewalkers trying to make the most of their limited training time. The $175 fee for this invaluable two and a half-day weekend clinic includes individual high-definition video-taped technique analysis, group lectures, use of Polar Heart Rate Monitors, and all handouts.


Dave McGovern has been a competitive racewalker and racewalking coach for the past twenty-nine years. He is the only track and field athlete in US history to qualify for seven consecutive Olympic Trials, and he has walked 20 kilometers in 1:24:29--earning the distinction of being the fastest walker in US history never to have made an Olympic Team—yet! In addition to conducting his “World Class Racewalking” clinics throughout the known Universe, Dave, who holds a Master's Degree in Sport Science from the United States Sports Academy, is a USAT&F and LSA certified coach who has led dozens of former clinic participants to masters American and World Championship titles and records, including coaching seven clinic alumni all the way to the US Olympic Trials.
