Up until now, my wife and I have been doing my races on our own without any assistance. We were planning on going down to Kingsport, TN so I could compete in my first National Racewalking Competition. We were figuring out approximately how much it would cost us to travel to Kingsport, re: fuel for a round trip, lodging for 1-2 nights and for meals. It's about 1,100 miles round trip, it would cost us about $400 to make the trip and unfortunately we just don't have it. So, my question is; who sponsors racewalking? I realize it may be too late for me to go this year, since the competition is in about 2 weeks, but maybe I could go next year.
Any info regarding this matter would be helpful.
