Fresno and Cleveland-area indoor meets beckon to masters
Friends remind me that some great meets open to masters are coming up. One writes: “Many masters competitors don’t know about, arguably, the finest indoor track facility in the U.S. It’s part of the GaREAT Sports Complex in Geneva, Ohio (45 minutes east of Cleveland). Built in 2009, the facility has an 8-lane, 300m state-of-the-art indoor track with huge turns. It’s the perfect place to set PRs. On February 6, this facility will be host to the Lake Erie Association Open/Masters Indoor Championships. Entry forms can be found at overthehilltc.org.” A couple weeks later is the Run for the Dream meet in Fresno, California. Masters events including the 55-meter dash, 55 hurdles, 600 yards, mile and shot will be contested Feb. 27. (See the schedule.) Meanwhile, don’t overlook Andy Hecker’s national list of all-comers meets.
