ParaOlympians will compete at the Drake Relays for the first time later this month with the additions of two new events.
Relay’s director Brian Brown says they will have two wheelchair races that are championship events. Some of the Para-Olympic medalists from 2008 will participate.
Those are two of the new races that make up a field of 119 events, the biggest ever for Drake. Brown says the addition of lights in Drake Stadium a few years ago have allowed them to expand the event. He says the Friday night events allows them to increase the events they offer.
The Drake Relays are April 22nd through the 24th.
