About us

Racewalkers Northwest was founded in 1993 by John Hanan II. We are dedicated to physical fitness through safe, systematic training and mental fitness through competition. Our club members represent all ages and racewalking abilities. Check us out - join us for one of our weekly club walks. We welcome new members!

Our membership year runs from January 1 - December 31.  Besides discounts to our club races, your membership dollars allow us to host USATF races, offer group walks and education events, as well as to provide outreach opportunities to grow our sport.  Want to join?
