Nojus and Martin competed in a race walk event at Minet Country Park in Hillingdon on Sunday 8th February. The boys represented Ealing County in the Under 11 age group. The race was 1 km long.
Racewalking has two rules:
When walking, the walker must make contact with the ground with the front and back of the foot
Your advancing leg must be straight from the moment you touch the ground until it is vertical
If you break the rules, you may get a warning or even disqualification. Both boys walked perfectly and did not get any warnings.
Nojus finished first and Martin finished second (less than one minute behind Nojus). Well done boys - we are all really proud of you!
Both boys are looking forward to competing in a 2km park run at Pitshanger Park this Sunday at 9.30am. This is the same race event that Leo and Maceo in Year 5 and Olivia in Year 1 regularly race in.
If you are interested in competing in a 2km race, any child aged 4-14 can enter for free, you just need to register before you go. Click on the link below for more information about the Pitshanger junior parkrun.
