Overall awards will be given to the top 3 women and men finishers. To be eligible for a top three award, judged racewalking rules will be applied. The two rules used in a judged racewalk are The Straight Knee Rule (the advancing leg must be straightened from the moment of first contact with the ground until in the vertical position) and The Contact Rule (the walker makes contact with the ground so that no visible loss of contact occurs).
The top three women and men in each of the following age groups will receive awards after the results are validated. This can take up to two months. The age groups are: 19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80 and above. Judged race walking rules will not be followed for age group awards. However, as a walking only event, anyone who runs, whether for a few steps or one minute will be disqualified.
Only those who sign up as a competitor will be eligible for an age group or overall award.
No. Baby joggers, bicycles, scooters, strollers, roller skates and roller blades are not permitted in the Walking Classic. Pets are not permitted. Unofficial support bikers are also not permitted.
