A Step by Step Guide

Step 1

It is a simple and natural way of moving, but with proper technique, you can turn casual walking into power walking or fitness walking. Power walking is a low-impact way to improve cardiovascular endurance and total body strength. Some of the benefits of power walking are that it helps tone and strengthen your muscles, improves physical health and burns the same amount of calories as jogging.

Step 2

Stretch your muscles to prevent injury. Perform calf, quadriceps, hamstring, hip flexor, shoulder and triceps stretches once your muscles have become warm enough to stretch.

Step 3

Place your arms in a 90-degree angle and keep your back upright.

Step 4

Position your head in a neutral position that is in line with your spine. Keep your gaze looking forward and not at the ground.

Step 5

Open your mouth slightly to ensure proper breathing. Tighten your glutes and abdominals.

Step 6

your heel first and then distribute your weigh onto your toe while using your hips to push you forward.

Step 7

Alternate arms and legs forward to maintain walking in a straight line.

Step 8

Cool down by slowing your pace and dropping your arms by your sides. Continue decreasing your pace until your heart begins to gradually return to normal. Stretch each muscle for 20 to 30 seconds each.

Basic Rules

The rules of the walk are simple since it’s the inception year:

1) One foot must be in contact with ground at all times which means you need to walk and not run.
2) Only Indian Nationals are eligible for the prize money.
3) Flag Offs will happen in batches of 200.

FOULS AND PENALTIES

  • On committing a foul (no foot in contact with the ground / running / pushing other participants), a yellow card will be shown to the participant by a judge.
  • Each foul committed would amount to a penalty of 10 seconds being added to the final completion time of the participant.
  • Any participant crossing the limit of 5 fouls (50 seconds penalty), will be penalized 30 seconds per foul (for fouls 6-10); Post 10 fouls, participant would be shown a red card to indicate disqualification

Things to keep in mind

  • Reach the event location 15 minutes before the reporting time to avoid any delay in registrations.
  • Sleep well the night before the event.
  • Do not forget to carry your unique BIB.
  • Familiarize yourself with the rules and penalties before the event day.
