With support from San Antonio Walks and the South Texas Walking Club, we are pleased to offer for the first time a USATF- Certified Invitational 5K Racewalk which will be judged under USA Track & Field rules. The basics of these are:
1) One foot must be on the ground at all times.
2) Contact with the ground is made with the heel and the forward leg must be straight on impact while it transfers under the body.
This event is open to all but awards will only be given out to individuals following Racewalking rules for the entire event—Not designed for leisure or run-walkers. A Racewalking clinic will be provided 30 minutes before the start of the events.
