The Illinois Track Club will be selling Club Relays t-shirts this year. The design for the shirts has been finalized. The front of the shirt features our new Club Relays logo. See below for pictures of the front and back of the shirts. 100 of these shirts will be available for sale at the meet (sized S-M-L-XL). The relevant meet details are:
Date and Time: Saturday, February 29th at 10AM
Location: University of Illinois Armory (505 E. Armory Ave, Champaign, IL 61820)
Schedule: The women's race of each event will precede the men's race. The meet will be run on a rolling schedule. Both running and field events will begin at 10AM.
1600m Sprint Medley Relay
1 Mile Run
Scoring: Relay events are scored 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1. Only one relay team per school can score in each event. However, each team may enter as many relay teams as desired. Individual events are scored as two person relays, with the top two marks from each team counting towards the team score (except for the mile, in which case the top four marks are added together). Scorers do not need to be declared in advance.
Facility: The meet will be held at the University of Illinois Armory. This is a 200 meter indoor track. Spikes (up to 1/4 inch pyramids) are permitted. Batons and starting blocks will be provided. An athletic trainer will be available to all athletes, and emergency medical staff will be on-site.
Costs: $10 per individual event and $20 per relay team (team cap at $350). Payment is due the day of the meet, no exceptions.
Hotels: For those of you who are on the fence due to travel costs, I have included below the names of local hotels with their approximate cost, distance from the Armory, and phone number. As you can see, there are many affordable options. Of course, hotels should be contacted directly to confirm price and availability.
