Officials with the Drake Relays are hoping for another attendance record for this month’s event. Single session tickets went on sale last week and associate athletic director Dennis Francois says all-session packages are still available.
Francois says the ticket packages are designed for different fan bases. “We have a lot of high school participation and Thursday and Friday is really heavy on that,” Francois says. They step up the packages for the college events on Saturday.
Francois says there is a special price for Thursday’s distance carnival. “We still have a full day on Thursday…that ticket is just a five dollar ticket,” he explains.
Francois says plenty of tickets remain for all sessions but they expect the Saturday afternoon session to sell out for the 47th consecutive year. “Last year actually we had a record attendance at the relays for the entire session of the relays, Saturday of course was another sell out. We were blessed of course with good weather,” Francois says.
The Drake Relays are April 26th through the 28th.
