The calendar for the 2019 European Athletics Race Walking Permit Meeting series is now available as a pdf under related documents.

There will be three events in the build-up to the European Race Walking Cup in Alytus, Lithuania on 19 May, beginning with the 38th edition of the Dudinska 50 in Dudince, Slovakia on 23 March.

The Dudinska 50 is expected to attract another top-level international field with race walkers looking to secure the 50km race walk qualifying times for the IAAF World Championships in Doha in late September. There is also expected to be keen home interest after Matej Toth and Maria Czakova took a double in this year’s edition.

The second event on the programme is the annual event in Podebrady, Czech Republic on 6 April followed by the Naumburg Race Walking event in Germany on 13 April.
