Coney Island RaceWalks

On April 21st, 2013, forty-seven walkers lined up for the start of the 102nd Coney Island Racewalks, the oldest race walking event in the USA. It was a beautiful day, sunny and 37°. Thirty-nine walkers opted for the 5 mile distance while eight took on the 10 mile challenge. The “10” is handicapped; slower walkers start first and the faster ones try to catch them. This gives every competitor an equal chance of winning. The post race activities included the awards ceremony and a complete Sunday brunch.
