PODEBRADY RACEWALKING 2017: 5KM VETERANS & JUNIORS

Home PODEBRADY RACEWALKING 2017: 5KM VETERANS & JUNIORS

Category Archives: Podebrady

The yearly competition in Podebrady (National Championships and EA Race Walking Permit Meeting) is one of the most important races throughout the year in Europe. Held each year around April it became a very traditional race which started from Prag to Podebrady almost a century ago,  exactly 85 years ago.

See for yourself!

The circuit is very popular between the racewalkers which has an even floor, smooth turns, totally flat which is a one km loop around a park  in other words perfect and what I heard the best track so far.

After Dudince and Vienna, Podebrady is a much bigger race than I have ever visited. So in other words I am scared but really excited for what I am going to experience.

PODEBRADY RACEWALKING 2017: 10KM JUNIOR GIRLS Part II It was a fantastic race and only one girl needed to go on the Pit lane and I saw it. And that is something new I learned that day. When  someone "breaks" the rules three times they have to stop for two minutes at the pit lane

PODEBRADY RACEWALKING 2017: 10KM JUNIOR BOYS

PODEBRADY RACEWALKING 2017: 10KM JUNIOR boys Time for the Junior Boys the 10km walk and I have to say they were fast. They definitely walk faster than I run. I would run in 60 minutes between 9-10 km if I didn't get out of breath on km 5, but they walk it in 45 minutes. Pretty amazing!

Podebrady Racewalking 2017: 10km Junior Girls So the 10 km junior race was really interesting as I had the pleasure to talk to some racewalkers before the race. And what a surprise. I did not know anyone of these ladies competing in Podebrady before, so everyone was new to me. Right before the race a bit of

PODEBRADY RACEWALKING 2017: Water Please!

PODEBRADY RACEWALKING 2017: Water Please! The water and the sponge stations are my favourite spots and obviously the last round of the race, where you can see in everyone's faces the struggle. The water station is always good for a surprise and fantastic to shot decent pictures. My favorite moment was when Živilé passed the bottle

Podebrady Racewalking 2017: 20km Women The weather was fantastic, not a drop of rain unlike the day before of the race.

Poděbrady Racewalking 2017: The Day Before I arrived in Podebrady for the "Podebrady Racewalking 2017" around noon, what a change! A week ago was summer in Vienna and today in Podebrady is winter, raining and really cold. Checked in the hotel, a fantastic presidential suite in the most expensive hotel in Podebrady (let me dream!!!).

Podebrady Racewalking: Who is coming?

Podebrady Racewalking: Who is coming? I recently received the entry list for the Podebrady Racewalking races. My first immediate reaction was panic, the second was to get an extra SD card for the camera, 32gb weren't enough last time. I felt a bit overwhelmed with the race in Dudince, but this one is going to
