HAPPY EASTER AND NEWS OF A VIRTUAL RACE SERIES – APRIL THROUGH MAY

With all its contradictions and limitations have a good Easter!

Apologies for missing the first week of this initiative, but it’s not to late to be involved

Message from Andi Drake

In challenging times, we still want to be competitive. We’re introducing a virtual racing series to the race walk event group using World Athletics points.  

The National Centre for Race Walking Summer League is a virtual racing series occurring every Tuesday, commencing 7th April 2020; results are posted on a Thursday following each virtual race. 

Record your performance, and earn bragging rights via World Athletics point scores (M/F, junior age groups M/F).

It’s still possible to be involved – go to website for more detail and to enter your time.
