2007 USA Race Walking Grand Prix Series
Dates: January 28 - October 28, 2007
The USA Race Walking Grand Prix (USARWGP), now in its 4th 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 2007 USARWGP will have 11 races in the traditional Open division, of which 8 will include team scoring. New for 2007 is the Junior division for athletes under 20 years of age. The Junior Grand Prix will include 9 events, with distances ranging from 5,000 m to 20 km.
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.
