Tim Seaman and Jeff Salvage Race Walking Clinic
Albany - May 30th and May 31st
(In conjunction with the 10K Nationals)

Two Time Olympian Tim Seaman and founder of www.racewalk.com Jeff Salvage are proud to announce their coming together for a series of exciting educational race walking clinics. Tim’s experience as one of America’s most dominate 20K walkers for the past two decades is combining with Jeff’s vast experience of coaching, educating, and promoting race walking. Together they are creating a weekend clinic that will feature individualized attention, group lectures, and high tech know how that will leave you walking more quickly, more legally, and more powerfully than before. 

Featuring not one but two qualified instructors allows the clinics to focus on beginners and advanced walkers simultaneously.  All attendees will experience hands on coaching, in addition to the many well prepared lectures covering technique, training philosophy, nutrition, injuries, and strength work. Jeff’s unparalleled photographs of the World’s best walkers along with Tim’s critique of their style provides unique insight into the upper echelon of race walking. While many walkers need the detailed PowerPoint presentation on technique, others who have attended clinics in the past can opt for additional hands on experience with Tim. All participants will not only receive individualized attention and feedback, but will also receive an email version of their images with the critiques sketched overtop.

Tim Seaman has race walked since 1988 and quickly became one of America’s premier race walkers. He broke his first Jr. Record in 1990 and was a member of the 2000 and 2004 Olympic team.  Tim is 3rd on the all time American list of national titles and currently holds 10 American records. In addition to training and working, Tim has coached  some of America's top National Team women as well as many of the best and brightest upcoming stars from the South Texas Walking Club and from around the country.

Jeff Salvage started race walking in 1984 and had a brief, but successful, career competing nationally and internationally as a  competitor before turning to coaching and educating. He is the founder of www.racewalk.com and author of “Walk Like an Athlete” and “Race Walk Like a Champion” as well as their corresponding videos and DVDs.  Jeff has coached walkers at all levels from beginning fitness walkers, marathoners, elite juniors, and international competitors.
