Saturday, April 27th the Belorussian race walking Cup was held in Brest (BLR) which allowed the selection of the Belarusian team for the Alytus European Cup (LTU).

The participation was intense as in addition to the European Cup competitions a series of national youth competitions called "Our hopes" were also held.
