Race Walking Rules and Regulations
USATF Rule 232.2 - Definition of race walking
Race walking is a progression of steps so taken that the walker makes contact with ground so that no visible (to the human eye) loss of contact occurs. The advancing leg must be straightened (i.e., not bent at the knee) from the moment of first contact with the ground until the leg is in the vertical upright position.
USATF Rule 232.3b - Race Conduct
In walks where multiple distances are contested simultaneously, each competitor must declare on the entry form which distance is being entered. Times for other distances (but not placings) are valid only if the competitor finishes the distance entered.
