Australian All-Time Rankings – Road and Race Walking

We endeavour to provide you with most up-to-date Australian all-time rankings. We include deep Open rankings (top-100 where possible), but also include Junior lists (top-50 where possible) and Youth lists (top-30 where possible).

There continues to be an enormous amount of research that goes into the Junior and Youth lists, so we are always happy to be notified of any additions/corrections (please contact us via our contact form). Essentially we are trying to fill the gap, where it had previously been extremely difficult to find rankings lists outside of Open level.

Herb Elliott - Previously held the world record for both the 1500m and mile.
