The Australian 50km Race Walking Championships originally scheduled for December 3, will now take place on Sunday, December 17 at Fawkner Park in Melbourne.
Athletics Australia was forced to cancel last weekend’s event after a deluge of rain swept over most of Victoria, with safety of athletes, officials, staff and spectators the priority.
Entries will automatically roll over to the new date. Athletes who are unable to attend the new date will be provided with a full refund of their entry fee.
