Drake University officials say ticket sales are ahead of last year for next month’s Drake Relays. The 102nd running of the event will be April 29th through the 30th in Drake Stadium.

Associate athletic director Dennis Francois says they are about 15% ahead of last year. He says individual session tickets are now available.

The Thursday and Friday sessions usually have big walk-up sales if the weather is good. Francois says those sales are also very dependent on the high school qualifiers, as people come out to see their son or daughter run.

Francois says there are a couple of ways to order tickets, online at: www.godrakebulldogs.com or call the office directly at: 515-271-3647.
