2) Harry Jerome Classic Track and Field Exhibitions - Monday, June 8, 6:30 to 9 pm, Swangard Stadium
You may recall from the last update that our Tigers have been invited to enter 8 relay teams in the Junior Development exhibition races that take place during this competition. Kinda like an NHL hockey halftime show in which young local teams compete in exhibition games during NHL games. This is a fabulous opportunity for our Tigers to rub shoulders with some of the best elite track athletesin the world as they compete in the final qualifying event for the 2015 Pan Am games!
The starting line-ups for events at this competition are impressive and currently include: Allyson Felix, USA, who won 3 Olympic gold medals in 2012 (200m, 4x400, 4x100) , Wallace Spearmon, USA, who placed 4th in the 100m in the 2012 London Olympics and many other inspiring athletes from around the world. Our exhibition relays take place in the midst of this action between the women’s 1500m and women’s 400m events. Check out the website here: http://www.harryjerome.com/events/
We have been invited to field 8 relay teams (4 girl teams and 4 boy teams of 4 Tigers each): please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if your child is interested in participating - include your child’s name, year of birth and which adult they will be coming with. I need this information by Monday, May 25. Rides can be arranged, but as this is an out-of-school event, these will be done informally among parents. Email me (email@example.com) if you are having trouble arranging transportation for your child.
Registration in this event is free.
