Olympic Celebration Open 5 Mile Racewalk
Enfield's 'Queen Elizabeth
Stadium' is about five miles from the Olympic Stadium and well placed for
Enfield & Harringey AC to host an event to which visitors from overseas were
invited to join racewalkers from UK clubs. Starting and finishing in the
stadium, the three and five mile contests involved a series of loops on tarmac
footpaths around football pitches and flowerbeds.
This gathering of over 100 fanatics included walkers from Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, New Zealand, Germany, as well as a group of Brazilians who arrived late and were offered a one-mile specilly arranged race. They were joined by several of those who had just completed the three or five mile event.
