Wisconsin Racewalk Events

There are two upcoming racewalk events in Wisconsin, so don’t delay in entering them.

Sunday, January 31st, Carthage College, Kenosha, WI – The USATF Midwest Indoor Meet will include a One Mile Racewalk. The event will be held around 12pm. The entry form can be found at http://www.decamouse.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderfiles/midwestregional2016entryr1.pdf. The entry form does say 1500m RW and 3000m RW, but it will be One Mile. This is a great track to walk a FAST time, so I hope to see a lot of you here to qualify for upcoming Indoor championship events.

Sunday, February 7th, Carthage College, Kenosha, WI – The USATF Wisconsin Indoor meet will include a 3000m Racewalk. The event will be held around 11am. Entries can be submitted through https://coachoregistration.com/dbi-bin/meetinfopage.pl?Web_Site_Id=wi_usatf&Meet_Id=usawistraf1601&Team_Id=&. Last year, we had 14 finishers. It would be great to see even more! Let’s make this the top attended indoor meet in the entire central USA! Again, this is a great chance to qualify for future Indoor Championship events.

For both events, we are in need of one or two judges. If interested in judging, let me know. Thanks!

Spread the word!
