The 10 kilometres race walk, or 10-kilometer racewalk, is a racewalking event. The event is competed as a road race. Athletes must always keep in contact with the ground and the supporting leg must remain straight until the raised leg passes it. 10 kilometers is 6.21 miles.[2]

History[edit]

Timothy Seaman, U.S. record holder

It was introduced at the 1912 Summer Olympics in Stockholm for men, and the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona for women.[3] It is no longer an Olympic event for women, having been changed to 20 km in 1999, though it is run in some international competitions.[3][4]

World records[edit]

On May 28, 2000, Roman Rasskazov of Russia set a new 10-km race walk world record in Saransk in a time of 37:11.[5] The all-time women's 10-km race-walk record is held by Yelena Nikolayeva of Russia, at 41:04.[6]
