Pre-qualification for 2024 and 2026 World Athletics Race Walking Team Championships launches


World Athletics has launched the pre-qualification for the next two editions of the World Athletics Race Walking Team Championships, taking place in 2024 and 2026.

The World Athletics Race Walking Team Championships aims to demonstrate that the power of walking is infinite. Top racers compete in a total of eight official world championship events held over two consecutive days. The event also offers an excellent opportunity to highlight the ‘walkability’ of a host city by showcasing pedestrianised areas and paths, as well as incorporating green and active transport.

A Bid Guide offering more information about the World Athletics Race Walking Team Championships, including the projected budget as well as the economic, social and environmental event impact, is now available on our website by clicking here. The submission deadline for the Pre-Qualification Form is 1 April 2022 for both 2024 and 2026 editions. For more information on hosting this event, please contact us at bidding@worldathletics.org
