TWC Mission Statement

This is accomplished through our sanctioned events, by sharing information

about events that other clubs are holding, by encouraging walkers through

our monthly meetings and our monthly newsletter, by organizing routine

group walks at our YR's, and by recognizing the achievement of

individual walkers.

Walking is a Healthy, Fun, and Enjoyable Sport !

QUESTION : How many calories does a person burn walking???

ANSWER : According to "The New Wellness Encyclopedia" from the editors of the University of California at Berkeley Wellness Letter, the calories burned per minute of activity per pound of body weight are -

+ walking at a normal pace over fields and hill - 0.037

+ walking at a normal pace over asphalt - 0.036

+ climbing hills -0.055

+ running a 6 minute mile - 0.115

+running an 8 minute mile - 0.095

+ running an 11.5 minute mile - 0.061

So a 150 pound person will burn 5.55 calories per minute (150 X 0.037) walking at a normal pace over fields and hills.
