USATF 50km Nationals – Details

USATF 50km National Racewalk Championships
and Open 10km & 20km races
February 15, 2009, 7:00AM
Santee, CA
Start/Finish at Mast Blvd & Magnolia Ave
1,250 meter out-and-back course, IAAF-certified

Top U.S. men and women compete for the national Open and Masters titles while the top five male walkers qualify to represent the U.S. at the Pan American Racewalk Cup in El Salvador. The winner will likely qualify for the World T&F Championship in Berlin, Germany if his time is faster than the IAAF 'A' or 'B' time standard. Besides the grueling 50km (31 mile) distance, there will be Open 10km and 20km races. Also competing at this elite event will be athletes from Sweden, Canada, Ecuador, El Salvador and Colombia.

Come race or cheer on some of the finest walkers in the world!
