1500m Walk Records

The 1500m track walk is not actually a championship event but is usually put on as part of the Centre Champs to provide an additional event for walkers.

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.

As a Wellington-specific event distance, only Centre records are maintained.

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.

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.

Prior to the September 2016 agreement on shared membership between Athletics New Zealand and New Zealand Masters Athletics, only those masters athletes who had joined NZMA were eligible to claim records. Now domestic Masters Records can be claimed by both ANZ and NZMA members.
