Long Island has an active program which has produced some of the country's finest race walkers, including many Olympians, dating back to the 1960s. Walk-USA/Oiselle's Maria Michta-Coffey, who competed in the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games, holds six American records.

Dave McGovern and Gary Westerfield are world-renowned coaches and authors. The professionally designed course at the Dennison Building office complex in Hauppauge is the site of national and international championships.

Walk-USA hosts group workouts once a week, year-round, at the rear of the Dennison Building on Thursdays at 6:00 PM. **Starting March 25th, practice will change to Wednesdays at 6:00pm.** Contact Gary Westerfield for details.

Weather and daylight permitting, World Class Racewalking conducts free workouts (and instruction for beginners) at Friends Academy in Locust Valley, once a week at 6:00 PM. Contact Dave McGovern for details.
