Changes to the Walking events
In the spirit of inclusion SAMA has decided to introduce Club Walking into its program. We hope this will encourage current walkers who struggle with bent knees, previous walkers who no longer compete for fear of disqualification and runners who might like to try walking without the pressure of full Race walking rules.
SAMA will now have two types of walking in its competition – Race Walking and Club Walking. See the Competition Formats page for details.
