Dan Bulkley at 99 set for another Huntsman World Senior Games

Dan has done cross-training with roller skis.

It’s about 830 miles from his home in southern Oregon to Snow Canyon High School in southern Utah. But Dan Bulkley knows the route well. Starting Monday, the Masters Hall of Famer will take part again in the Huntsman World Senior Games in St. George, celebrating its 30th year. At 99, Dan’s the oldest man. (The oldest female trackos are 93-year-old Eva Sorensen of Springfield, Virginia, and 91-year-old Dottie Gray of Kirkwood, Missouri.) Entrants at the three-day meet are listed here. But like the best masters events (Hartshorne Mile, etc.) the competition isn’t the only draw. “The Games is a total experience,” says CEO Kyle Case. “Each sport hosts an athlete social where the participants have an opportunity to have a great meal and create new friendships and renew old ones off the field of competition.” Dan will stay with the sprint tribe (50 and 100) and throws tribe (discus and javelin). But Al Box of Discovery Bay, California, is going for the Blue Plate Special — nine events. He’s an M90. Best of luck to all.
