Results of the USA Track & Field - New England 5,000 Meter Racewalk Grand Prix
Sponsored by the New England Walkers

The USA Track & Field - New England 5,000 meter Racewalk Grand Prix was held on the track at the Harry Downes Field in Brookline, Massachusetts on Sunday, May 31, 1998. The event was delayed by 25 minutes due to electrical storms. The women's event started at 11:30 AM and was judged by James Fields, Thomas Knatt, Justin Kuo, Ken Mattsson, and Steve Vaitones.

Thanks to the Town of Brookline Recreation Department for use of the field and to Coach Dave Counts for arranging the permit, setting up the track, and for allowing the New England Walkers duck into the field house as the storm passed through.
