VRWC Fixture - 2019/2020 Summer Season

VRWC Logo



The RaceWalking calendar in Australia is divided into two main seasons, Winter and Summer.

The Winter Season occurs between April and September and covers the Australian winter. Conditions are generally superb for road walking with mild winter temperatures, fast courses and lots of competition for all age groups.

The Summer Season occurs between October and March and coincides with the long hot Australian summer. The emphasis in on track walking and most races are over the shorter track distances. There is also a strong walking presence in the 'Interclub' Track Competition with all Athletics Teams fielding walkers in their regular competitions.

VRWC races are conducted in a traffic free environment on the Albert Park Formula One Grand Prix service roads, Albert Park Reserve, Middle Park.
