LWC Virtual Series July 8 Kilometres results

Quite a few people have commented upon the mental challenge posed by doing a solo 8 kilometres so thanks to everyone for continuing to support the series. At least 6 injury-struck people have sent their apologies and hope to tackle the 10 kilometres challenge in August. Whatever the dilemmas thrown up by virtual race walking our series and the original 2k series overseen by Helen Elleker and John Constandinou are keeping us on our toes through these surreal times.

Congratulations to Mary Pusateri, 2019 USATF Masters F50 5k and 10k champion, Thanks to Luke Lu for the photo and John Constandinou for the discovery

8 KILOMETRES HANDICAP

The race within a race based on handicap allowances was a traditional feature of Race Walking events across the decades at a club level, but particularly within Open races. Entry forms would always ask for one’s latest performance to assist the handicapper decide on your allowance based on the fastest prospective competitor starting from scratch i.e. having no handicap allowance. The handicap race was seen as providing motivation for athletes throughout the field – from a younger walker breaking through to a seasoned veteran still striving to do do their best.
