Oregon TC plans masters exhibition events at big Eugene meets
Oregon TC Masters is reprising its masters exhibition events at elite meets, starting Saturday. Local paper even mentioned them weeks ago. Details on entering are on the OTCM website here. Craig Godwin is the go-to guy for event info. Craig writes: “The Oregon Track Club Masters is once again putting on masters only races at two major University of Oregon meets. This is a great chance to race at Hayward Field, in front of a crowd! We want to showcase masters athletes in all age groups from 40 up, so don’t be shy about participating. We have had athletes up to age 82 compete in past years.” I’m sorry about delayed posting of this, since deadline was a week in advance. But maybe if you say you saw it here, he’ll cut you some slack.
Craig also writes:
There is no entry fee, and you do not need to be a member of the Oregon Track Club Masters to compete, but you must enter in advance. Entries may be limited, so respond quickly to reserve your spot. The final deadline to enter (if space remains) is one week before each event. You may enter one event in each meet. To enter, respond to this email with your name, age, team affiliation (if any), and event.
Pepsi Invitational – Saturday April 9th – Approximately 11:00 AM
Oregon Twilight – Friday, May 6th – Approximately 5:00-5:30 PM
The masters races will occur back-to-back to kick off the track portion of the meets. The exact race times will not be set until the college/open entries and TV schedule for these meets are finalized, but start times are expected to be in the approximate ranges listed above.
For more information, contact Craig Godwin at email@example.com or (541) 687-1551. Updates will also be posted at www.otcmasters.org
If you are not competing but will be attending the meets as a spectator, but sure to arrive early enough to cheer on the masters competitors!
Also remember the Hayward Classic is coming up on Saturday, May 14th! This is one of the premier masters meets in the country, offering a full range of track and field events for masters (40+) and sub-masters (30+) athletes. This year’s meet is also the USATF Oregon Masters Championships. More information can be found at www.haywardclassic.org
