Who are we?

The NSW Race Walking Club ( NSWRWC ) was founded in 1911 to meet a particular athletic need. It is one of the oldest athletic bodies in NSW. The aims of the club are to encourage race walking and to develop competent walkers, judges, coaches and officials.

The NSWRWC, on behalf of Athletics NSW, conducts the majority of the NSW Road Walking Championships during the winter season. In addition, a full program of club competition is conducted. These programs are designed to cater for men, women and children of all age groups from Little Athletics to Veterans. Competitors of all standards are provided for with a range of graded events of varying distances with both handicap and scratch results and point scores.
