Watch the Race Walk

The Olympics end tomorrow, so if you're out of tickets or didn't get any and you still want to get your fill of watching London 2012 events in the flesh, you might consider watching some of the Race Walk in Green Park.

Only around 50 percent of the race is in a ticketed area, meaning that ordinary plebs can line up along some of the route and see part of the races, but be quick if you want to see the the men’s 50km event, which starts at 9am, followed by the women’s 20km event at 5pm.

  1. But, honestly, did you see what happened in this race walk that you have pictured!? Borchin collapsed and looked near for death. Walking is serious stuff!
