I-Walk & T-Walk Blog

A couple of simple diagrams showing you examples of the I-Walk, T-Walk and a typical stage setup. Some of the photos shown here are from NPC Sweden Grand Prix and Iron World Regional in April 2022.

Stage Setup

The stage should be clearly marked with tape or another type of marking. If there are no markings on the stage, then memorise this diagram. Some federations will have you walking on stage and then walking off stage and others will have you waiting on the taped diagonal line after you perform your I-Walk or T-Walk. If you are unsure of where to step on or off stage on the day, ask the backstage crew for advice and the runners should be able to help you too.
