There are, of course, other representative efforts but this list is restricted to the normally accepted major competitions.

Note that profiles of all these walkers can be found in the book 'Once Were Walkers' that was published in 2006.It can still be ordered as per the following link:  Once Were Walkers

Since then, more Victorian walkers have joined this elite club and those already on the list have further enhanced their own records. YOu can read updated profiles of these and other Victorian walkers by following the link http://au.geocities.com/timerickson.geo/index.html
