Oceania Masters
3000m Track Walk

The event has never appeared at the Olympics, where the 3000m and 3500m made appearances in 1920 and 1908. A 10000m walk was held sporadically until 1924. After that all walking events were held out of stadia, on road.

The event was only held a few times. It generally swapped with a 3000m or 5000m track walk. When those both became a part of the standard programme, the 1500m walk was dropped..
