Welcome to the South Australian Amateur Walkers Club Inc (SAAWC) trading as the South Australian Race Walkers Club (SARWC). The SARWC operates a Winter Season open to all age groups (7 years and above) and abilities typically between April and September on Saturday afternoon (See Program for details).
Race Walking while promoting fitness and competiton is also about fun. All club competition is conducted in accordance with the rules and regulations of the International Association of Athletics Federations. However, walkers participating in club races can also walk under 'Club Rules' which offer a more relaxed interpretation of race walking, suited to beginners, some older walkers or walkers with a disability.
Meets are held within the Picturesque Adelaide South Parklands at the Adelaide Hockey Club Rooms on the Eastern corner of Peacock Rd and Greenhill Road. All are welcome, whether you are a senior athlete, little athletics athlete or someone who enjoys physical exercise why not come along and try or compete in race walking to see if it is for you. South Australia has a proud history of successful race walking champions; maybe you could be the next.
Our club is working towards becoming a STARCLUB
