Fixtures

As you may have noticed it is getting more difficult these days to find a reliable and complete fixture list for Race Walking events. The best option at the moment seems to be the RWA Lists issued regularly by Pauline. I am now putting these on the website, summarised here. This page will always be available from this website, by tapping / clicking on the ‘gearwheel’ icon above, and scrolling down to ‘Blogroll’ and the ‘Fixtures from the RWA’.
