Women’s 800 added to masters exhibitions at the Drake Relays

Jim Schoffman shared this news with me recently — great news for the womenfolk. “I received this notice that the Drake Relays Masters registration has opened. But more important is the addition of a women’s master 800 this year.” The info on the entry form adds: “Master’s 800 Meter Run (40 years and older) Men – Friday, April 26, 2013 @ 12:58 p.m. (Tentative) New!! Women – Saturday, April 27, 2013 @ 11:20 a.m. (Tentative) INVITATIONAL EVENT: Entries will be considered based on previous performance. Please send your verification of performance with a $30 (non-refundable) entry fee by April 11, 2013. … Call 515-271-2114 with any questions. This is a USATF-sanctioned event.” Des Moines, Iowa, is close to a lot of folks in the Midwest and midway between the coasts, so this is a great opportunity to compete on an elite stage.

    The Women need to enter by way of the Masters Invitational web page because their race is part of the USATF Masters Invitational program- the Men’s race is an all comers event and can be entered by contacting Drake Relays directly. This is a Historical event-In 104 years of the meet they have never contested a Women’s Masters event.We have Alisha Harvey and Lisa Ryan confirmed. Looking to get 8 women under 2:18.00
