AMA 20k Road Walk Championships 2018
It is now just over 8 weeks to the 20km Walk Championships – plenty of time to increase your mileage to do it comfortably. Also being a month out from Malaga it can be a perfect hit-out for those going to the World Championships.
The course is AIMS certified and we have the benefit of having Zoe Eastwood-Bryson as Chief Judge. Zoe was of course Chief Judge at the recent Commonwealth Games and while being a top international judge is also sympathetic to Masters Walkers and the “no advantage concept”.
This year we also want to encourage some inter-state rivalry by having a team event (well suggested by Colin Heywood). Points will be awarded from 25 for the first finisher down to 1 for the 25th finisher. Highest total for up to 3 people from the same state or territory will be the winning team. Pride and bragging rights in being the top state/territory will be the main prize but a bottle of good SA wine will also go to each team member.
So anyone considering coming – talk to your fellow walkers to ensure you have a team.
