Walks

5000m

Description

The indoor 5000m racewalk is competed on a 200m track. Competitors must complete 25 laps.

Race walking differs from running because one foot must be in contact with the ground at all times. Failure to do so is known as ‘lifting’.

The rules also state that the advancing leg must straighten from the point of contact with the ground and remain straight until the body passes over it. Three violations of the rules during a race lead to disqualification.
