Welcome to my blog – RichardWalksLondon.com
I’m a long distance race walker from New Zealand, living in London, and in this blog I write about my adventures as I walk the streets of London. This map shows where I walked since moving back to London in 2014.
Most of my training walks are relatively short and local to home (Kingston Upon Thames) but some walks range up to 50 miles and my focus when it comes to racing is events of 100 miles or more.
I started race-walking in 2012 due to a running injury and haven’t looked back. I did my first 100 mile/24 hour race in Auckland, NZ in October 2013 qualifying as NZ Centurion number 19, and then qualified as UK Centurion number 1131 in August of 2014, and Continental Centurion C432 in Holland in 2016.
I’m regularly taking photos when out walking and this blog is where I share those photos as well as writing about some of the sites I see and the training I am doing.
