The HCAAA supports The Herts. Race
Walking Alliance, an informal cross-club initiative aiming to
encourage interest and participation in Race Walking and its
development within the County.
Coordinated by Herts. Race Walking
Secretary David Annetts, a UK Athletics Event Group Endurance Coach
the focus is on Introduction, Coaching and learning strong technique
- and to funnel newcomers toward development opportunities within a
supportive and enjoyable environment.
Working to recruit walkers from all age
groups and abilities on a recreational to competitive
spectrum Coaching is offered to all Athletics and Running Clubs,
Schools, Further & Higher Education, Leisure Centres, Community
Groups and individuals.
Race Walking has many positive benefits
for participants in exercise, general health and wellbeing and as a
technique focussed sport it’s one where male and female athletes of
different ages can train and compete very equally together. We’re
fortunate in Herts. that opportunities for accessible development
competition are nearby within the Enfield League where any new
participants can be sure of a warm welcome.
