WalkAthlete™ training programs are designed specifically to teach students of all ages and fitness levels how to walk for exercise using proper walking technique. The great thing about walking is that everyone knows how to do it. Unfortunately, most people have never learned to walk with correct form and posture which means they are not benefitting as much as they should from their walking exercise. Using the right muscles at the right time to develop and maintain good muscular balance is necessary to build strength and endurance, and avoid injury.

We’re located in the beautiful Tampa Bay area, staging races in Clearwater, Fort DeSoto Park, and Madeira Beach to Largo.
“Just wanted to let you know that this was my first half marathon. It was an extremely well organized and great event. From check-in to water stations, to volunteers to finish line, etc. It was all done top-notch. It made the first time experience of 13.1 an enjoyable one for me. Plus all the “goodies” at the finish line and the area for the finish (especially for those with families like me) was a great spot for viewing and recovering! GREAT JOB!!! Thanks for making it a memorable first half.”
