The Rules of Racewalking
The information below has been provided by The Central Gauteng Athletics Road Walking Committee, for more information about walking you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Race walking is a progression of steps so taken that the walker makes contact with the ground so that no visible (to the human eye) loss of contact occurs. The advancing leg must be straightened (ie not bent at the knee) from the moment of first contact with the ground until in the vertical position”.
Translated, this means that contact must be maintained at all times (the difference between walking and running).
The supporting leg must be straight at the knee from the moment of foot contact with the ground, until it passes under the body (ie the leg must be straight). When walking or strolling, the leg normally bends at the knee.
As most walk results are contained within Road running results we are using the same script
