Racewalking is an event that is conducted exactly as the name suggests – fast walking.

Racewalking requires unbroken contact with the ground. That is, one foot must be touching the ground at all times.

When the leading or advancing leg makes contact with the ground, the leg must be straightened until it is under the body.

Competition distances are 700m, 1100m and 1500m depending on age.

Pakenham currently does not do Racewalking.
