BEST PERFORMANCES

R.W.A. Best Performances are recognized for outdoor track performances only and must be set during bona fide competitions; however, if there is a performance on road over 20k or 50k superior to the best track performance, it shall be recognised in addition to the track performance and marked "r" in the lists below. They cover many distances and times not recognized for the purposes of national records. They may be set by any walker qualified by nationality to represent GBR; unlike national records, they may be achieved under R.W.A. judging rules (one judge may disqualify). Any performance recognized as an English, British, World or Commonwealth record can be recognized automatically as a Best Performance. Performances in italics are awaiting confirmation or further information.
