The following is a list of Web-based articles I have found that cover various aspects of pluswalking. The list is intended to help you find articles on the topic(s) in which you are interested. The articles are listed by source Web site (with a link to the site's home page), and then by article title (with a link to the article). To return from an article to this page, use your browser's "back" or "previous" button--as illustrated below.

I will periodically update this list but, because my list will not always be accurate, I recommend that you browse about each Web site if you do not find what you want in my list. (My list will indicate the types of articles found at each site.) If you find an article (or a Web site) that should be included, please contact me.
 
NOTE: This list is not intended to be all inclusive. (For example, many club Web sites explain the rules of race walking and not every such page can, or should, be listed here--though I may list them if they are comprehensive and very well written.) To be listed, a page should be unique, of some length, and should be of general interest to the broader race walking, ultradistance, and/or marathon walking communities. This page is an experiment in communications, and will be pulled if it proves unmanageable.

Race Walk UK - an outstanding site by John Constandinou that focuses on the statistical side of race walking in the UK. It also includes articles and sections as noted below.
  • Age-Grade Calculator - allows viewer to calculate the age-performance percentage and factor for all standard race walking distances.
  • Athletes - access to a well-kept data base on UK race walkers which allows the viewer to look up any walker and view his/her photo (if available), club affiliation (if stated), race results, and an ability to compare the person's performances to those of any other walker in the data base. [This page must require one heck of a lot of time - Phil]
  • Athletics Standards - times for various race walking events required to meet UK standards (including "A" and "B" standards for international competitions).
  • British Centurions - is a list (through 2005) of the 1000+ persons who have walked 100 miles in less than 24 hours in a sanctioned event on UK soil (includes several persons from other countries).
  • Clubs - lists all walking clubs in the UK, including links to those that have Web sites.
  • Documents - includes links to several pages at the site with information for UK race walkers--including the Age-Grade Calculator and Athletics Standards pages noted above.

Ultrawalk.com - a personal site by Colorado ultrawalker Ulli Kamm who, by mid 2009 and at age 60-61, had "raced" in over 230 events ranging from 30 to 226 miles (48 to 364 kilometers)--including 62 of 100 miles (161 kilometers) or more. That does not include countless other walks, hikes and hill/mountain climbs. Browsing through his Web site gives you a sense of the world of people who simply love to walk. The Web site is a collection of photos, race reports, descriptions of several favorite events, and an assortment of articles--including the following.
