2018 National Championships and Masters National Championships

There are still some gaps, but the dates for most of these championships are now known. National Championships here and Masters championships here. Details of the Centurions Walk / national long distance championships, and the Masters road championship races other than the 5 miles, will be added when they are known.

Race Walk Training Camps, Leeds, February 12-14 and 19-21


More details are now available of the two February training camps in Leeds, coinciding with the differing half-term dates. The second one follows the British Indoor 5000m Championships (an invitational event) in Birmingham. Basic details here, registration and more details on content here or here.

There’s an opportunity to take part in research into muscular strength and race walking economy. Coaching, training and biometric analysis are free, athletes and coaches have to look after their own transport, accommodation and food. There is a new Premier Inn close by (here), and as a registered athlete with England Athletics you probably have a discount at IHG hotels – their nearest one is the Holiday Inn Express Leeds City Centre.
