Saturday 27th July 2024,
Racewalking Australia
Postal Challenge event

 

The Racewalking Australia Challenge is a Racewalking Australia club versus club competition. The points from the fastest competitor from each club in each race will be added and the club with the lowest points declared the winner. If a club fails to have a competitor finish in any category, that club will be awarded the same points as the highest scoring competitor. Master athletes will not be scored on their time but their age grading so all Master athletes must submit their age at entry time.
All athletes who are members of the club are automatically entered into the points race for the distance they walk. NO entry fee is required.

Who are we?

The NSW Race Walking Club ( NSWRWC ) was founded in 1911 to meet a particular athletic need. It is one of the oldest athletic bodies in NSW. The aims of the club are to encourage race walking and to develop competent walkers, judges, coaches and officials.

The NSWRWC, on behalf of Athletics NSW, conducts the majority of the NSW Road Walking Championships during the winter season. In addition, a full program of club competition is conducted. These programs are designed to cater for men, women and children of all age groups from Little Athletics to Veterans. Competitors of all standards are provided for with a range of graded events of varying distances with both handicap and scratch results and point scores.
