The 2010 IAAF World Race Walking Challenge is the 8th edition of the annual international race walking competition organised by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF). Ten meetings are scheduled for the competition: the 2010 IAAF World Race Walking Cup, four IAAF permit meetings, and five area permit meetings.[1]

Athletes who have gained enough points from competing at these meetings will be entered into the IAAF World Race Walking Challenge Final, where they will compete for a total pot of US $200,000 in prize money.[1]

The following ten meetings, as well as the competition final, form the schedule of the 2010 World Race Walking Challenge.[2] The "A" category meetings are worth the most points, with progressively fewer points being available through the "B" and "C" categories.[1]
