Tomorrow, March 31, marks the beginning of the 2010 Texas Relays, the huge annual track meet that takes place at the University of Texas. Unless you are a former college runner or have kids that participate in track & field, there is a good chance that you don’t think much about the event (until you get stuck in the resulting traffic jams on I35, of course).
As a runner, the Texas Relays should be of interest to you and as a Rogue it should be an event that you make a point to attend!
The Relays are free to the public on Wednesday and Thursday, and the runners – everyone from the 100m runners to the 5K guys – are sure to put on awe-inspiring and motivating performances. This year is extra special for Rogue, as several of our Team Rogue Elite runners will be making their 2010 outdoor track season debut and the UT women, coached by Rogue founder Steve Sission, will also be competing.
You can find the event schedule here, making it easy to make plans to attend and cheer on our runners. Team Rogue Elite will send Darren Brown, paced by Kyle Miller and Adam Perkins, to the 5,000m race on Wednesday evening and the three will also compete in the mile on Saturday. The UT women will compete in a variety of events – bridge the gap between road runners and college track athletes and get out there to support them!
