2005 USA Race Walking Grand Prix Series
January 23 - December 3, 2005
The USA Race Walking Grand Prix, now in its 2nd year, is an effort by USATF to crown an overall champion for each competitive year based upon the National Championship schedule of events. Races are contested from 1 mile to 50 kilometers for men and women.
The wide range in distances enables the top race walkers in the U.S. an opportunity to compete against each other all year long and aids in developing the next group of international-level athletes at the same time. The 13 events selected for 2005 provide athletes with a geographically diverse racing schedule and sponsors with national exposure for their products.
