Welcometo the Edmonton Racewalk Club (ERC) website. We are an enthusiastic group of racewalkers who share a passion for the sport and want to see it grow. Racewalking has been an active part of the sports scene in Edmonton for many years.
The ERC is a non-profit organization, and we charge no fees. When you provide an email address, you will receive informative updates and communications. While racewalking is our passion, we promote all types of walking for fitness.

We now have a facebook page. Check it out.
