Format / Rules: 
• Participants must present their Huntsman World Senior Games ID Badge at the venue check-in desk one hour before the start of each race. 
• Athletes must not wear clothing that could impede the view of the judges (i.e., the knees and legs must be clearly visible at all times - so athletic shorts or tights must be worn). 
• Both a computerized and a back-up timing system will be used.
• Race numbers must be visible on both front and back. Power Walkers will have different color bib numbers. 
• Power Walking is a progression of walking steps heal to toe taken so the walker makes contact with the ground with no visible (to the human eye) loss of contact. The advancing leg can be bent as it passes under the body (run/shuffle is not legal). Judges will look for loss of road contact and run/shuffle so competitor can be disqualified if they receive three violations or warnings from three separate judges. Loss of road contact in a bent knee form is considered running, not Power Walking.
• Check the Sports Lounge at the Dixie Center for possible clinics. 

Medals: 
Gold, Silver and Bronze medals will be awarded to top three finishers in each event for each age division. Medals will be presented at the completion of each event.
