The Walk event is open to any style of walking, but walkers must not run.
Walking is universally defined as a progression of steps maintaining contact with the ground. (Technically the knee joint must be momentarily locked with each stride)
Nordic walking is allowed so long as the poles do not interfere with other entrants.
Please participate in the spirit of the event and abide by these criteria for walking, thus saving embarrassment to both yourself and event organisers.
Walkers placings are neither acknowledged or announced at prize-giving.
