RACE WALK OPPORTUNITIES IN THE USA

(Last updated, 14 December, 2018 – it will be further updated as information about 2019 becomes available)

 

The purpose of this document is to help athletes, parents and coaches understand the numerous opportunities available to race walkers, and potential race walkers, in the USA:

 

 

1)      Major Domestic Race Walk Competitions & Prize Money

 

USATF competitions awarded over $130,000 in prize money to Race Walkers during 2018.  An individual winning all three major races in one year (indoor 3,000 and outdoor 20k and 50k events) would pocket $22,000!  Another $30,000 in travel allocations & reimbursements for expenses is available. Tier and development grant dollars further support top race walkers in their Olympic dreams.  This can amount to an additional 1-6 thousand dollars per year in support to an athlete.


SPECIAL NOTE: National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) athletes may now accept prize money.  Two (2) stipulations: 1) the competition must take place when school is not in session (i.e., summer, implying athletes can accept prize money at the USATF Outdoor T&F Nationals) and 2) the athlete must not represent his/her school at the competition.

 

  1. USA Indoor National Track & Field Championships

 

The USA Indoor T&F Championships for both 2019 & 2020 are slated for Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex, on Staten Island in New York City.  The 2019 dates are February 22nd thru 24th.  The distance slated to be contested is 2 miles. Prize Money (2018): $6,000 (1st); $4,000 (2nd); $2,500 (3rd); $1,500 (4th) and $1,000 for 5th place.  The 2019 qualifying standards are below:

·         Qualifying window for the 2019 Indoor Nationals: November 16, 2018 to February 17, 2019.

 

  1. USA National 50 Kilometer Race Walk Championships:

 

The 2019 national championships at the 50 kilometer distance will be held in Santee, California, (near San Diego) on Saturday, January 26th. There will also be an open 20k & 5k conducted simultaneously. The athletes will select themselves for the 50k squad which will compete at the Pan American Race Walk Cup (Team Championships) in April, Pan American Games in August, and the World T&F Championships (Doha, Qatar) in September. Prize money (2018):   $8,000 (1st); $6,000 (2nd); $4,000 (3rd); $3,000 (4th); $2,000 (5th); $1,000 (6th) and $1,000 (7th place). 

 

·          NOTE #1:  There is no qualifying standard to enter the USA 50k Nationals in non-Olympic years.

·          NOTE #2:  This is also the Master Men’s and Master Women’s American RW Championships at 50k.

  1. International Team Competition Selection Events

 

In alternating years, the USA selects its squads for the Pan American Race Walk Cup (odd # years: 2019, ’21, etc.) and IAAF World Race Walk Team Championships (even years: 2020, ’22, etc.).  In 2019 the competition to select the USA team at 10k (U20) and 20k (Senior men & women) will be held March 17th in Tustin, California.  The 50k squads for M&W will have been selected earlier at the USA 50k Race Walk Nationals on Saturday, January 26th, in Santee (San Diego), California.   


No qualifying times are needed to participate in the team selection races.   Since anyone can compete, these annual affairs are the largest and most competitive race walk events held in the USA each year. Especially since the Master’s M&W 20k nationals at the same distances will be held concurrently.  Information on the race & the entry form for the Team Competition Selection Races will be on-line at the USATF web site:

 

http://www.usatf.org/Events---Calendar/National-Championships.aspx

 

The international U20 teams consist of 3 junior men and 3 junior women (16-19) who compete at a 10k distance.  Senior men’s and women’s teams compete at a 20k distance.  Generally, an open team size of 4 competes at the PanAm level and 5 at the World level. The table below identifies the A – Automatic qualifying time at the Trials, and the B – Minimum time used to fill the team based on performance rank order obtained during the qualifying window.

Prize money: In 2019 the PanAm Cup Trials will also be the USATF 20k Championships for both Open & Master Men & Women.  Prize money & travel funding has yet to be determined. It is anticipated that the prize money will be the same as at the 50k Nationals held in January.

2)    USA RACE WALK GRAND PRIX CIRCUIT

 

The USA Track & Field RW Grand Prix Circuit is a collection of races throughout the year at which an athlete can score points based upon his/her finish in that race.  Competition encompasses the entire age spectrum; Junior/U20 (14-19 year olds) and open men and women, as well as master (over 35) men and women.  The top 3 M&F finishers in each category at the end of the year will be recognized at the National Convention. The individual events comprising the Grand Prix Circuit are identified in the Composite Schedule for the year.   This is available on-line at:

 

http://www.usatf.org/Events---Calendar/2017/USA-RW-Grand-Prix.aspx

 

3)    HIGH SCHOOL COMPETITIVE OPPORTUNITIES


In addition to the competitive opportunities available thru the USATF RW Grand Prix Circuit at distances from 5,000m thru 20 kilometers, there are some specific competitions that high school athletes - and their parents and coaches - need to be aware of.   The top two are the early season PanAm RW Cup (odd years) or World RW Team Championships (even years) Selection Races – and – the USATF Junior National T&F Championships in June.  If you want to travel as a member of one of the internationals teams identified in Section #7, the first step is participation at these events.   There are no qualifying criteria to be in the Team Selection Races.  There are, however, minimal standards that must be met to enter the USATF Junior Nationals meet (see section #1 for these qualifying standards).

 

4)    COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS & RACE WALKING OPPORTUNITIES

 

At the college level the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) conducts the national championships for race walkers at the 3,000m distance indoors.  And at the 5,000m distance outdoors in May. A large number of college meets and conference championships also include the walk as a scoring event.


Numerous college scholarships are available to high school race walkers at NAIA colleges nation-wide.  High School athletes & parents seeking more information on race walking at the collegiate level and obtaining an athletic scholarship in Track & Field for race walking please request a copy of:

 

 “A Letter to High School Athletes about Race Walking in College”

by Vince Peters.  It is available via email at:  mv_tc@sbcglobal.net

 

 

5)    Al Heppner Memorial Scholarship for Collegiate Race Walkers:


All college and high school athletes need to know of the existence of this scholarship.   Named in the memory of one of our USA National Team members, Al Heppner, the scholarship is awarded annually to a college sophomore, junior, or senior who has exhibited excellence in the class room and in race walking.   Athletes applying for the scholarship must have completed a 20k race and write an essay about their ambitions within race walking.  Deadline for applications is October 1st.  The winner is usually announced in December.  This scholarship is typically worth up to $2,500 to the winner(s).

 

For more information about these scholarships, or to make your tax-deductible gift to support this superb program, please go to the USA Race Walking Foundation web site:

2019 Pan Am Games qualifying standards (qualifying period is January 1st, 2018 thru midnight (Peru Time) of June 26th, 2019).  Target field size numbers are in parenthesis:

At the end of the deadline indicated above, in cases where the number of athletes that have qualified is lower than the established quota per event, the Technical Delegate will invite other athletes until the quota is met, based on the Pan American Area rankings obtained during the qualifying period. Additionally, the fact that an athlete obtains the minimum mark listed above, it does not automatically qualify him/her for the Lima 2019 Pan American Games. The mark is only used as a base to achieve the quota established per event.

 

2019 IAAF World T&F Championships qualifying standards (qualifying period March 7th, 2018 thru midnight (Doha Time) of September 6th, 2019).  Have not seen specific wording on how the over/under of the targeted field size will be handled.   Assumption is it will be similar to that used for the Pan American Games.
