20 km race walk.

Walking race, or race walking, is a long-distance athletic event. It is different from running: in that one foot must appear to be in contact with the ground at all times. Stride length is reduced, so to achieve competitive speeds, race walkers must attain pace rates comparable to those achieved by Olympic 400-meter runners;and they must do so for hours at a time since the Olympic events are the 20 km race walk and 50 km race walk.
