USATF Junior Olympic Pit Lane for Race Walk

The IAAF Council added the Pit Lane Rule as a way of “reducing (if not eliminating) disqualifications altogether.”

• The Pit Lane will be used for the USATF Junior Olympic National Championship 1500 meter & 3000 meter Racewalks.

• USATF Association & Region Junior Olympic Championship meets may use the Pit Lane to ready their athletes for the National JO Championships.

• USATF Competition Rules 230.3(c) and (j) address the use of the Pit Lane.
