2008 USA 10 km Race Walk Championships
May 31, 2008
Lace up your sneakers and take part in the 2008 USA 10 km Race Walk Championships -- part of the 30th annual Freihofer's Run for Women Festival of Events on Saturday, May 31.
The event, which will be held at 7:45 a.m. on Albany's historic Empire State Plaza, one of the most interesting 1 km loops in the nation, is a national showcase for open and junior men and women and will feature an open category prize purse of $3,000.
Sponsored by the USATF Adirondack Association, the Championships will serve as a competitive tune-up for some of the nation's top race walkers before they compete at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Track & Field in Eugene, Ore.
Be there to experience the thrill of a lifetime! Or cheer on top competitors as they gracefully engage their hips and arms at speeds of less than seven minutes per mile -- faster than most people can run!
