10km Road Walk Best Performances/Records

The 5000m track walk is an event that has never appeared at the Olympics. Track walking as a whole has only made sporadic appearances at that level, with 3000m 3500m and 10000m distances appearing up to 1924. After that all walking events were held out of stadia, on road.

An indoor track walk, 3000m or 5000m, was held in the IAAF World Indoor Championships until 1993, after which it was discontinued.

The 10km road walk is not contested at the Wellington Champs, or the South Island Champs.

Where Centre records are better performances than National or World records, this likely indicates that the athlete either failed to apply for the record within the application window or was unable to meet the stricter paperwork requirements. More recent records could still be in the processing stage at World or National level.

Electronic times are preferred but not required, with the proviso that hand times require three watch readings. Where it is not readily evident that a historical hand timed record or electronic time is faster, both will be listed. [I believe any time given with a single or no decimal is hand timed but unless marked it is not explicitly expressed.] Lap scoring sheets are required to be submitted with record applications for events 3000m and above.

Note: Athletes move. Wellington records applicable to athletes registered to Wellington at time of performance. Island championship records applicable to athletes registered to that island at time of performance. NZ records applicable to athletes registered appropriately to NZMA at time of performance. Oceania championship records applicable to athletes registered to OMA at time of performance. World records quote national affiliation of athlete at time of performance.
