Thank you all for coming out this summer! We were so pleased to see so many of you enjoying yourselves while also exploring how fast you could run, jump, vault and throw. We have posted the results from the meet on July 11th, and it was our biggest turnout ever. We had 415 participants (110 of you were new to our meets!), and the results include a total of 688 marks in the track and field events combined. Given the wonderful response to our request for help in the future, we will definitely see you next year. Do not forget the Cross Country meet coming up on August 1st!
We will be posting the results on PA Milesplit and on Masters Rankings within a day or two.
August 1st -- Greater Philadelphia 5K Cross Country Challenge.
In all of our meets our goal remains to provide excellent competition for all levels of runners, jumpers and throwers in a spirit of community and friendship. In the summer of 2015 Leslie Chaplin set an American record in the mile for women in the 55-59 age group with our big crowd of spectators and fellow athletes urging her on. The record was exhilarating to watch, but what was also exciting for us was that the record met all of the tough timing and judging requirements and was officially accepted as a new American record. Our youngest competitor last year was under 5 and our oldest was over 80. So join us and run faster, jump higher and throw farther!
