La marcha históricamente ha sido una competencia que involucra a la sociedad con los atletas al verlos pasar, y es un ejemplo del esfuerzo y concentración. Además, atletas de todo el mundo participan, y a Sudamérica, ha dado grandes alegrías.

ritengo la specialità degna di vera attenzione, perchè da sempre risulta essere, per chi la sceglie, lezione di vita, sacrificio, pazienza, e tantissime soddisfazioni personali.

I'm signing because I am a USATF Masters race walker age 72 . I've only race walked one 50Km race walk as a "bucket list item and that was enough to to have great respect and admiration for world class and Olympic race walkers. The 50Km race walk should be preserved for men and women in the Olympics and IAAF World Championships!

Race walking is not just about racing, it is a chance for the individual to show what sort of integrity, diligence, and fortitude they have.
The 50km event is the pinnacle of application of this discipline, achieved only by those that are fit, healthy, and have the guts to try it.
The 50km event is unique in it's approach to basic aspects of competition.
