On 26th of March INWA certificated 19 Nordic Walking Referees in Croatia were officially certificated by INWA International Trainers Naohiro Takahashi and Marco Maas. They followed the Race Official Course in Zagreb under supervision of The Croatia Nordic Walking Association. INWA welcomes these Nordic Walking Referees in its network and wishes them all nice races with lots of participants!
Nordic Walking races and competitions are sporting events in which fitness comes first and competition second. The goal is to preserve a good technique and gain the benefits of this activity through a fun competitive sporting experience. NW competitions can become a motivation for regular NW training, walking in the outdoors, enjoying nature, keeping an active life style and ultimately improve fitness.
To comply with INWA Race Nordic Walking rules, every participant must use a correct technique. Special attention should be paid to the high lighted points when considering the penalty cards.
INWA Education Team has developed a special Race Official course which is interesting for those members who want to start organising competitions, races or even World Cups.
