And now onto the full listing of all carnival results. Some comments:

  • The LBG Carnival was first run in 1967 and has been held every year since. It is held in Canberra each June on the Queens Birthday long weekend. If not for the reporting efforts of the late Peter Waddell, many of the older results would be lost to time.
  • The Main Federation Carnival  (now called the second Federation Carnival) was first contested in 1923 and is still going strong.It was a standalone carnival until 2007 (apart from the occasional instance when AA and RWA combined). Since 2008, it has been held in conjunction with the Australian Winter Roadwalk Championships. Initially, it was a single event carnival, contesting either the Glover Shield (7 Miles) or the Alexander Cup (50km) for men. Over the years, additional team categories were added (Robinson Shield, Lorna Carrington Shield, Norm Goble Shield, Claude Knight Shield and Jacobson Shield) to bring the total to 6. In 2006, the carnival was enhanced in scope to add teams categories for younger age groups, to take the number of teams events to 12.
  • The Postal Challenge has been run since 2005 and is held in July.
  • The RWA 100km Championships have been held since 2005 and are hosted by the Australian Centurions in April each year.
  • The RWA Women's 50km Championship has been held since 2011 and is normally held in conjunction with the Victorian 50km championships each September. Yes, an Australian women's 50km championship was introduced in 2017 but it has a time limit of 5:30:00. Thus the need still exists for an alternative 50km for women which has a more generous time limit. The RWA Women's 50km Championship fulfils this need.
