Informal Virtual 5 km Racewalk
May 30 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
Our virtual racewalk organizer, Rogo, provides these guidelines…
“Pick a track or course near you. You have a week to record your best time on a 5 k racewalk.
Start on May 30th – Saturday. Start between 8 and 9 am. Walk your 5k, preparing as if it were the state championships or any other dream you have. Record your mile or kilometer splits at least. You can be as detailed as you wish.
Send your results by noon Sunday June 7th to email@example.com
If the weather does not cooperate on May 30th then please try for a time on Wednesday, June 3rd or Sunday, June 7th. These are spaced 4 days apart for ample recovery. It would be like race week encompassing actually 8 days. Same starting time ( 8 to 9 am).
You only need to send in your fastest 5k. You can do 1, 2, or 3 5K’s. RESULTS should be sent in by noon on Sunday, June 7th.
If possible please include a link to your GPS sports watch or smartPhone sports app results (if you have one).
If a friend can record some start or finish video we’ll post that too for informal judging comments.
Please try to set your course distance as accurately as possible. A track is best, but most are now locked. A GPS watch/phone app will be close for distance but there is some error – typical over 5 k is up to +/- 50m. A few walking trails have distance markers. Highway mileposts can be another check on your distance if you have a low traffic, safe, level & measured highway in your area with wide shoulders.
We will be on the honor system as a few of us do not have the high tech recording devices. The mininium is your finish time and mile or kilometer splits”
