Presentation Belgian Walking Association 


To promote the walking sport in all its diversity to the new and future generations, a new association was founded by six administrators under the name “Belgian Walking Association”, abbreviated BWA.

What are the objectives of the association ?

The association has as objective:

♦ promotion of the walking sport – competitive & non competitive – to the new generations through directed campaigns and publicity actions at the target groups (schools, youth clubs, important sports events, festivals...)
To increase the efficiency, these actions will be supported by a good structural sport site and the use of high-quality promotion material;
♦ realisation of our ambition to grow into an international platform for the promotion of the  competitive & the non competitive walking sport;
♦ to revalorise the image of the walking sport to the youth and the young families by the development and the installation of the inspiring sport site of the Belgian Walking Association on the Internet;
♦ to offer a well-tended platform for a good outgoing communication to the press;
♦the presentation of a professional weblog in the website BWA for the management and the reproduction of the sports achievements of the walkers and the pilgrims; 
♦ to create a closer solidarity and collaboration between the long distance walkers on the fixed continent and worldwide;
♦ to form a dynamic and efficient project group for the possible organizing of race- and/or long distance walking events in Belgium.  

Why visit the sport site of the Belgian Walking Association ?

Some good reasons for a visit to the site BWA are:

♦ the clear presentation of the world rankings: the World Centurion ranking, the World ranking 200 km Race walk men and the World ranking 24 hour Race walk women;
♦ the centralization of the long distance walking tours/ events in the international walking calendar BWA;
♦ a transparent reproduction of the race results;
♦ the registration of your personal sports achievements in e-walking carnet. 

In short, a visit to BWA is really enjoying of the sports atmosphere within the walking sport; but it offers also the opportunity to come just in a holiday mood via “Alpine challenge” and the rich offer of walking events in Europe.

Final reflection

The board BWA wishes you a nice visit to the site and especially much pleasure with the walking sport, a healthy doing sport for everyone.
