Heritage Archives

Over the decades many items that are, or once were very important to race walking may disappear or simply be thrown away. The RWA have begun a new initiative - to collect/archive items that may be of interest, and also to record/archive information about other objects in the posession of walkers.

Items will be available on request. Please let the RWA know of anything you wish to be recorded, or preserved for posterity. Perhaps one day a permanent home can be found for the heritage archives; our own museum of race walking.
