Penn Relays amounting to masters nationals for sprinters

So where would YOU rather run — at a hot North Carolina meet with a few dozen fans in the stands, or during prime time of a cool Philly event with 50,000 people roaring themselves hoarse? The lineups of the masters sprints at this year’s Penn Relays are so loaded, they should be declared national championships. Our friend Larry Libow of in Massachusetts has shared the race rosters with us. Most of the big guns are coming — Bill Collins, Aaron Thigpen, Allen Tissenbaum, Bobby Whilden, Courtland Gray, Val Barnwell. The list goes on.

Me again: This is a place where masters relay bests are set — not the USATF masters nationals, where relays are for fun and fellowship after many heats and finals for individual titles. Also, Penn doesn’t lets any four ladies and gents run together in a given age group — no restrictions on club membership or regional USATF affiliation.
If the weather cooperates, records will fall like rain.

    Golly…i did NOT see the MOST important Masters sprinters name mentioned in your brief piece on Penn…whats up Ken??????????????? PHIL FELTON IS THE MASTERS PROGRAM AT PENN…..he is the one doing ALL the real work!!!!We Masters are good at “taking” Phil on the other hand is a Masters sprinter who is “GIVING”.The program he has developed and consequently runs is almost flawless.Anytime i needed help or assistance at Penn Phil was immediate in his response. PHIL FELTON IS A TREASURE AND MAKES PENN WORK SMOOTHLY…trust me its A LOT OF WORK…How about a big THANK YOU to Phil as we congratulate ourselves on our various efforts??? I also feel Felton should be “officially” recognized for all his time and effort…This man is the MOST IMPORTANT MASTERS SPRINTER who will be at the Penn Relays…NO QUESTION ABOUT THAT……THANKS YET AGAIN PHIL!!!!

    It is about time that someone actually thanked Phil personally for all his hard work. As Frank said Phil always is there to help out in any way possible to assist everyone in need of direction pertaining to PENN. His response to any matters that need correcting are always direct and to the point!!
    So Phil I also want to thank you for all the years that you have taken charge of the MASTERS program at PENN!! Keep up the excellent effort & good luck in your race next week!

    I am a 72 years old sprinter and I would like to know have any 70 years old person ever ran the 100 meters in less than 12 seconds.
    The reason is because in a few days I will be setting a new worlds record
    in the 100 meters. I have as my goal world records for the 100 and 200 meters, the tripple jump and the broad jump.
    I do not have any official time for any master meets for 2008 and I am not allowed to take part in the San Francisco meet based on their rules, so I will be seteting records in small meets sanctioned by the usa track and field. Remember my predictions Bobby Whildens record will be broken by me (12:71)
