||Many people enjoy Walking for exercise or to compete. There are those of
all ages who get out nearly every day to walk for fitness and just to enjoy the outdoors.
In many running races, there are categories that include fitness walkers and Race Walkers,
who take their sport quite seriously. There is some real skill and technique involved in
Race Walking, including the ability to follow strict rules for this sport. Any runner that
has been passed by Race Walkers has learned that some of the "walkers" are
actually very fast. They can be very disciplined and determined -- and are burning up alot
of calories, too.
