Walk Grand Prix means we have monitors on the course to insure that all registered walkers do not run or jog during the race. This is to make sure that the people who receive times and awards for the walk division did walk the whole race. Any kind of walking is okay - pedestrian walking, power walking, speed walking, race walking, etc. (see note below for the One Hour Postal) If a participant wishes to jog or run even a little they should register in the runner category.
Note that the One Hour Postal is walkers only and follows the USATF rules of race walking so part of one foot must be on the ground at all times and the advancing leg knee must be straightened upon first contact with the ground and stay straightened until it passes vertical.
If you have any questions you can email walkers@tidewaterstriders.com
