More than 100 women ages 50 through 89 challenged themselves and each other in the 5K power walk contests that took place at Balloon Fiesta Park in Albuquerque, NM for the 2019 National Senior Games.

The races started mid-morning under blue skies streaked with wispy clouds. As the day progressed with women’s and men’s races taking place, those gentle clouds grew thick and dark grey. The resulting thunderstorm warning delayed the start of the late afternoon races. Still, the competitors’ levels of excitement and anticipation remained energized, and goals were achieved by day’s end.

Listed here are the complete women’s results for the 5K power walk, first by five-year age group, followed by place, name, state, and finish time:
