Help Keep the 50km Race Walk in the Olympics

Patient and competitive race walker Paul DeMeester has been rigorously training to qualify for the 50km Race Walk Olympic Team Trials.

DeMeester-Perth-10k-October-2016

On 4/12/17 the IAAF will be meeting to vote on whether or not to abolish the men’s 50km race walk at the Olympic Games and IAAF World Championships and the 20km race walk moving to a half-marathon distance (21.1km). As supporters of these events, we should not, and cannot let this happen.

Please join us and sign your name on the attached petition to join the fight to save these historic, Olympic events.

Warmest regards,

Dr. Jenny Sanders
