Summer track series on the way this week
The Peachtree City Running Club has announced the schedule for its 2014 summer track series, which is open to runners of all ages and abilities.
Meets will take place Wednesday evenings from June 4 to July 2 at Riley Field adjacent to Peachtree City Elementary School. Registration begins at 6 p.m. with the first event at 6:30 p.m.
Participation is free for all runners and spectators.
Events will include the 50-yard dash (age 10 and under), 100-meter dash, 200-meter dash, 400-meter dash, 800-meter run, mile run, 3200-meter run, and 5K run. Also on the event schedule are 400-meter and 1600-meter relays. There will be no field events.
For regular weekly meets the events will be run in various heats based upon the number of runners.
In the championship meet, scheduled for July 8-9, events will be run in heats based upon age groups and gender. Awards will be presented at the championship meet only.
All heats will stress safety and quick times by being limited in number. The track surface is rubberized and soft. All timing is done by electronic equipment.
