World Athletics Race Walking Team Championships

Taking place in iconic outdoor locations around the world, the Race Walking Team Championships showcase the strength, stamina and technical prowess required over 20km or 50km distances. As the race walkers meticulously measure and analyse their performances through the race, spectators are amazed with their speed and are drawn into seeing both the physical and mental challenges, while keeping an eye on the judges who may brandish their red cards at any athlete who contravenes the rules.
