NEWalkers Well Represented at the 5k National Race Walk Championships

Last weekend, New England Walkers Ed O’Rourke, Val Vaitones, and Meagan and Nolan Allen competed at the USATF 5k Race Walk Championships in Albany, New York. Although NEW fell short of the required number of entrants to compete in the team category, they brought home some medals regardless!
 
In the men’s race, NEW president Ed O’Rourke received a silver medal in the M55 category, with a placing of 6th overall. Family duo Maegan and Nolan Allen both claimed National Junior (age 19 & under) titles. Maegan was 5th overall in the women’s race.
 
Great show Ed, Maegan, Nolan, and Val!
