Drake University officials announced plans for celevrating the 100th running of the Drake Relays next April. Relays director Brian Brown unveiled a special logo to commemorate the 100th running of the event which began in 1910 as well as a clock which will mark the countdown to next April 22nd.
Brown says they’ll have the countdown clock in a couple of areas around the city and it will hopefully remind people the Relays are coming and it’s something to be exicted about. Brown says they are inviting all the athletes who have taken part in the Relays to be part of next year’s event.
Brown says it’s an open invitation to them to come and be a part of the event. He says they are also inviting the Drake Relays queens of the past, and Drake letterwinners. Brown says they will also be asking fans to pick the top moments and athletes from the first 100 years.
