The competition took place on Saturday, June 15 at the University of New Mexico track and field stadium. Under sunny skies and warm temperatures, 74 women took to the start line to fulfill their dreams of winning medals, achieving personal bests, or simply reaching the starting line after months of training.

Shea Darian of Arizona, seen above wearing salmon-colored shorts, set a new unofficial record for women 60-64 with a time of 8:31.2. The previous record of 8:37.46 was set in 2007 by Yoko Eichel who took gold in the women’s 70-74 race. Shea’s record time is pending until USA Track & Field, the sanctioning body for race walk, officially certifies the results.

Listed below are the results for each five-year age group by last name, first name, state, and time:
