US Race Walking Championships Here on Nov. 22

Thursday, November 19, 2015

America’s best race walkers will be in Santee Nov. 22 to compete in the USA Track & Field Race Walk National Championship.  The fast walkers will vie for the national title as well as a chance to represent the USA in international competitions.
The competitors will walk a 1.25 kilometer loop course on Mast Boulevard between Magnolia Avenue and Jeremy Street, which is south of Santana High School.

Race organizers are expecting about a dozen athletes to compete in the 50-kilometer (31-mile) race, which begins at 7:30 a.m. and will conclude around 2 p.m.

 Santee was previously the site of the U.S. national championship race walk in 2009 and the US Olympic race walking qualifying trials in January 2012.
To accommodate the upcoming race, the westbound lanes of Mast Boulevard between Magnolia Avenue and Jeremy Street will be closed.  The eastbound lane will remain open. Watch for detour signs on Jeremy Street and Second Avenue.  Race organizers will have amplified sound during the event from 7:20 a.m. to 2 p.m. Information on the event is available on the USA Track & Field website at www.usatf.org
