8 a.m., Saturday, June 30th – Are you curious to know what it’s like to race alongside the fastest walkers in the world? If so, here’s your chance! US 50k title holder, Katie Burnett, will be joining Racewalkers Northwest on their weekly club walk this Saturday at the Tualatin Hills Nature Park, located at 15655 SW Millikan Way, Beaverton, OR 97006.
Coach Carmen is setting up a 500m loop along a bike path. Walk for the entire hour, or any portion. Ten laps is 5k, so use this opportunity to test your own speed. There will be a green bucket along the course. You are encouraged to drop a donation each time you get lapped. The money will go to Katie to support her training and travel as she works towards a berth on the 2020 US Olympic Team.
The start time is 8 a.m. If you finish early, please stick around. Katie will do a brief Q&A and take photos with you once the hour workout is completed. Contact us with questions.
