Seeking medals and personal bests, 34 women ages 75 to 100 competed in the 1500 meter power walk at the 2019 National Senior Games. Photo by Bonnie Parrish-Kell.

Power walk debuted as an “open” sport at this year’s National Senior Games. Unlike other events, participants did not have to first qualify at a state senior games or other recognized event.

Turn out surpassed expectations! More than 300 men and women registered for the 1500 meter races, and nearly 250 signed up for the 5K races. Many of the athletes competed in other sports while others were first-time power walk participants.

Listed below are the complete results for women’s races in all five-year age groups, beginning with 50-54, by place, name, state, and time:
