|Definition of Race Walking. Race Walking is a progression of steps so taken that the walker
makes contact with the ground so that no visible (to the human eye) loss of contact occurs. The advancing leg
must be straightened (i.e., not bent at the knee) from the moment of first contact with the ground until the
leg is in the vertical upright position.
||1. One foot must maintain contact with the ground at all times.
2. Lead leg must be straight.
