On Sunday, June 10th, the New England Walkers will host the 2018 USATF 5km Race Walk National Championships! They will be held in Framingham, Massachusetts — for the Men’s and Women’s Junior, Open and Masters divisions. There will also be a 1 km event in the Youth (14 & under)/Novice category.
The course is located in the scenic office park at Staples Headquarters, just a few minutes off of the Mass Turnpike/Interstate 90 and Route 9, and less than 45 minutes west of Boston. It is a one-kilometer, certified loop. There are several lodging accommodations within 2 km of the course — one is within walking distance.
