Potomac Valley Track Club - Race Walking Workouts

Race Walking Programs

PVTC Race Walk Clinics


Potomac Valley Track Club, long one of the premier race-walking clubs in the country, hosts race-walk clinics for beginning and experienced race walkers.

Race walking has an efficient, smooth, flowing style and can be an enjoyable addition to your fitness program; it is also a local and international competitive sport at all levels, including the Olympics.

Depending on your choice of intensity level, it can range from moderate exercise to a fast-paced, highly aerobic, full-body workout. It is a far lower-impact sport than running and provides comparable conditioning benefits for your health.
